Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The trails were in good condition, easily followed below tree line. However, some of the blazes near the summit were faded, or absent, making it easy to miss the trail. My husband and I missed a few blazes and we watched other hikers miss them as well.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: My dog did not join me on this hike; however, some of the ledges would be difficult for smaller dogs. If my dog came, I would have had to lift him up a few of the larger ledges near the summit. 
Bugs
Bugs: None to speak of. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: None 
 
Comments
Comments: A lot of the trail was muddy with running water and slippery rocks from the previous dayís rain. It didnít impact us too much on the way up but on the way down it was a little tricky. Even with a good tread on my hiking boots, I found myself slipping.
