Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Noticed several large blow-downs on Oliverian Brook just beyond the beaver dam on my way up. When I returned they had been removed! Kudos to the trail crew! Oliverian Brook above the junction with Passaconaway Cutoff is in need of some TLC. There are a lot of blow-downs of all sizes and brush encroaching on the trail. In places it has the appearance of an abandoned trail.

Comments
Comments: The muddy areas were easily avoided, and the water crossings were not an issue. Glad I had my trekking poles for balance on the rock hops. Square Ledge Trail was a little hard to follow - no blazes and fallen leaves obscured the trail in spots. The first small patches of snow and ice were found on Walden Trail at 3400 feet. The ice was easily avoided and the snow was the perfect consistency for bare-booting. Coverage increased as we went higher. The summit spur trail to the view was fully snow covered.
