Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: One large branch hanging across trail a few minutes from lot. Tried knocking it down for safety reasons but wedged in too high up with a solid branch. 2-3 blowdowns between summits with only one causing a few off trail steps. Lots of nice recent work; blazing, steps, water bars etc.; thanks to those doing it. 
Dog-Related Notes

Comments
Comments: Gorgeous day; the later one was out today the better it got. Lower section of trail quite muddy with lots of running water. Noticeable difference where water bars installed. In between summits was very muddy as well. Carried rock spikes but never felt a need for them. 1-2 inches of snow up higher which will most likely be gone soon until next snow. Lots of slippery leaf cover as well as slick mud in spots. Trees mostly bare. Some color coming through Bethlehem area.
