|Date of Hike:
||Monday, November 13, 2017|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Road was open Monday. Had an inch or two of fresh snow. |
||Snow - Trace/Minimal Depth, Ice - Blue, Snow - Packed Powder/Loose Granular |
||Light Traction |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Avoided first using BW to snowmobile bridge, second crossing okay with care on icy rocks. Traction helpful. |
|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.
|Lost and Found:
||Mt. Garfield, Garfield Pond|
Snow starting to fill in up high... plenty of ice on the on the trail too. Many thanks to Whitney and Denise for joining us for this trail work trip. Pleased to have cleared so much - good work, team!
