Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Wow some bog bridges are needed on Livermore and maybe a blaze here and there? Brushing needs to happen on Livermore and scaur ridge trail. I recall a few down trees but it was just a full packed day I can't recall on which it was. I know one was at least the top portion of Sabbaday. All were able to go around

Comments: Well it was a redline, grid, season, 4k a day, nhhh kind of day. Livermore trail was an awesome grade but wow was it mucky and wet and needed a little bog bridge love in places. The last time I went to Scaur peak the herd path was a cake walk, and not the hobble bush has taken over and it is mostly noticeable. I was unable to find the sign this time which I am hoping we just walked right by it instead of someone stealing it. We got up North when the thunderstorms started to circle and we got a little sprinkle here and there but nothing that lasted long. We only saw 4 people total after heading down middle all day! Sabbaday of course is where it started to rain right where it was slick and took us some time to get through. Once we made it to the first switchback down we made a very very steep line to the ridge. We got open woods the entire time but wow steep! .25 with about 400' was fun. Once up on the ridge there was a faint herd path but it was still so open it was nice. We got to the cairn and the handle as someone stole this cannister too which again I was wanting to see that one for years now :(. We had an idea of whacking to pine bend and then head down but with the possible storms around we decided to just go back as it was easy woods we were just in. We headed down sabbaday and only saw 3 trailrunners and 4 people at the falls. It was crazy for a 4k on a Sunday but with the weather forecasts, I get it. We got lucky and lots of things to knock off!
