Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Cleared 3 blowdowns on Mt. Garfield Trail. Three more large ones remain - they are easy step-overs in the first couple of miles of trail. Trail is otherwise in great shape. Cleared 51 blowdowns on the Garfield Ridge trail - mostly around the pond where we heard there were tangled clusters blocking the trail. All are gone and trail is passable for 1.3 miles from the Mt Garfield Tr junction. Did not have time to traverse the whole section, so more blowdowns could remain.
