Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Zealand Spur looked like it was trying to contain the Atlantic Ocean! Due to all the rain, that trail was not possible without wading through water over a foot deep, I would like to see some drainage structures there.

Comments
Comments: Nice weekend for a three day backpacking trip! Stayed at Guyot campsite and at Galehead Hut. Got lucky on the rain for the mostpart, it did rain quite a bit on Saturday. Shelter at Guyot was full, had to tent. Most of the trails were mud free with the exception of Lend-a-hand and Zealand Spur, both require wading through water that is about a foot deep.
