Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: These trails show the effects of the weather events since last October. My timing was good as a trail crew had just cleared the blow downs on the Carter Dome Trail, like within hours. Made my day much happier. That said there are serious erosion issues with parts of the Nineteen Mi. Brk. trail and the Carter Dome Trail. They are very rocky and have some bad wash outs. Eventually some major renovation will have to be done. A lot of the smaller blow downs have been cleared from the Carter Moriah Trail north of Zeta Pass to S. Carter, and the remaining obstructions are quite manageable. Big Thank You to the trail crews!

Comments
Comments: This was my spring maintenance run for my AT section from Zeta Pass to Carter Dome. There is a little extra erosion on the steep part up to Mt. Hight but the trail is in pretty good shape. Maybe I was just tired at the end of a long day, but the decent from Zeta Pass to the 19 Mi. Brook Trail was decidedly unpleasant. the weather events have taken their toll on that trail.
