Date of Hike
Date of Hike: Saturday, July 20, 2019
Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Good area which could fit at least 5 vehicles if people park carefully. DO NOT BLOCK ANY ROADS. Most of the land is privately owned, and like the sign says, "Use is a privilege, not a right." 
Surface Conditions
Surface Conditions: Dry Trail 
Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Easy little ones 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Nice blazes, but when we made the turn at the cellar hole and started up through a grassy area, we did not see anymore. They maybe there, but at this point we had already made one dumb mistake and it was too hot, so we turned around. Will be back to try again. CTA does a great job. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Should be o.k., as long as they stay on the trail and not go into privately owned land. Bring enough water as well. 
Bugs
Bugs: Some mosquitoes, some beautiful butterflies. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: A beer can was lost, found, then lost! Someone left it, I was going to bring it back, but then I forgot. They should have warning labels on beer cans - don't leave in the woods.  
 
Comments
Comments: We were camping at the Basin, so we were looking for something relatively good for a hot day. The trail head is easy to find, just off of Deer Hill Road. Conant Trail is a loop, we started it counterclockwise. We were so fascinated by the old cellar hole with big trees growing out of it that we missed the blaze that indicated that the trail turns left. We kept going, turned onto other trails, gave up and headed back. Oh well, there were a few ripe blueberries and some pretty paths. On the way back, we saw the blazes and decided to give it a try. But once ascending, we went through a grassy area, couldn't find the next blaze. I must been over heated and out of it, because CTA trails have blazes that looked like they were just painted. So we went to that great swimming hole that's near the Roost instead.
