Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails in good condition. On the trek out there was a 6-8 inch diameter spruce widowmaker blowdown across the 19MB trail about .4 from the trailhead. We are pretty sure it wasn't there on the way in. Easily ducked under but the little branches had not been snapped off yet so we were sure it was something that fell the night before (wind had picked up some before dawn).

Bugs: nope, not bad. One strange late season black fly bit me but he won't be biting anything else.

Comments
Comments: Great overnight trip. Nice warm weather, rain threatened but held off. Lone Wolf made a mad dash solo bushwhack up Little Wildcat, about .8 one way from our campsite. He says he easily found the summit canister.
