Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The 'wack and Fire Warden's trails were obvious, with some no problem blowdowns. There were some wet/soft/mud spots on FWT which if negotiated with care not only keep boots clean but avoids damage to the path. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Great dog trail with shade, easy slopes, paw pad friendly paths, some water on lower stretches and a great sippin and dippin river at the bottom. Pepper had fun playing with Rowdy nearing the TH on our return; but he had a hike to do and we were done so after a spell we split them up.  
Bugs
Bugs: None.

Comments
Comments: Even the entrance off the 'wack is now obvious with a small cairn and short mud slip path up to the old road. A great trail to get away from the summer crowds; but it is a quick hike with almost no open views. We didn't see anyone except at or near the trailhead and a couple on the peak. It was windy, cloudy and chilly on the exposed peak but otherwise fine. This trail goes through a beautiful largely intact white birch stand which is even prettier after/before understory leaf fall. There won't be much in the way of yellow this foliage season in it either as leaves are falling and those that remain have lots of brown.
