The long trail can be very hard to follow in the winter.  We tried to follow it a bit last winter at Bolton, and kept losing the trail.  It should be easy, but itís just not.

A GMC trail steward and I had a nice chat in the Starks Nest last season and she pointed out to me that the LT is really not built or maintained for winter use. FWIW.

I get lost on the LT in the winter with some frequency but I haven't required assistance
With white blazes on white snow and nobody's prints to follow, it can be tricky.
You are right, I usually just pop out somewhere unexpected, but not  in danger.

I am not sure what the conditions were like when this happened.

What's to be familiar with?  It's  a straight line.  If you  take the wrong turn at an intersection, you're at a road in an hour. How does one possibly get lost?
