Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trail is clear and obvious entire way. The first 1/3 of the 1 mile re-route is quite muddy; enough to interrupt your pace. Can't imagine what it looks like after a good rain. The second 2/3 of the reroute is muddy but easily managed. Looks like work on reroute is being done top to bottom. Forest Service has a sign saying they are monitoring the new trail. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: No water till 2 mile mark, then plenty.. Saw 1 dog and many humans. 
Bugs: A few around the muddy area. No deet, no bites.

Comments: Great day out. Lots of smiling faces on the trail.

Tis the time of year when the birds in the woods are eating, not singing, preparing for their trip south - quiet for the most part~
