Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Kenduskeag trail could use some brushing. Shelburne trail also needs Brushing. Highwater trail from the Shelburne trail to Moriah Brook trail is in rough shape and or non-existent due to undercut banks and washout from last October's storm. FS may need to consider rerouting part of the trail. Highwater trail from Moriah Brook trail to Black Angel trail is a sea of Hobble Bush in spots and is in need of extensive brushing. A few blowdowns on Black Angel trail could use attention, especially on the last mile up to the ridge. They are passable but are tough to get under.

Comments: Backpacking trip to tag Moriah, Shelburne Moriah and Carter Dome. Such a pleasant hike until we reached Highwater trail. Sections of it are non-existent and route finding and bushwhacking made us fall short of our intended mileage. Easy hiking up Black Angel trail to Carter Dome. Had planned on hitting South and Middle Carter and hiking back to the car but due to afternoon thunderstorms bailed down Carter Dome trail and 19 Mile Brook trail. Thanks to the gentleman who brought us back to our car.
