Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trail was in fine shape, though with the fallen leaves, some parts are harder to discern than others. Also, leaves do a great job of hiding the mud puddle beneath. Beware there's some significant sections down low where the mud will take some creativity to cross without your feet disappearing.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: An enthusiastic terrier was enjoying a clement autumn day. Its owners did mention being cautious on the upper reaches -- those rocks aren't always friendly to paws.

Comments
Comments: It was a fine day to be outside. Unfortunately the view from the top got shrouded by a late-arriving cloud. There was plenty to see from below the summit, though -- including a rainbow as I descended. It's still rocky, still slow going, but still a nice climb.

Photos and a more detailed write-up are on my blog.
