|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||one major blowdown on Ethan Pond Trail.... other duck-unders. Thoreau Falls Trail very sketchy in a couple places where it cuts in from the North Fork of the Pemi |
|Lost and Found:
||Excellent day out in the Pemi. I went about halfway down the Thoreau Falls Trail and turned around near Jumping Brook when I reached my turnaround time. Poked around looking for evidence of the old Foot Bridge at Jumping Brook but didn't dress for a bushwhack and woods were pretty wet. |
Didn't see a soul once I was in the Wilderness, but, there were quite a few folks out and about near Ethan Pond. No views from the top of Willey or from the outlooks.
Jogged much of the flats until back near Ethan Pond when I lost traction.... not a graceful landing...
Anyway, fun day even tho the foliage is mostly down on these trails. Thoreau Falls were beautiful as ever.
