|Date of Hike:
||Thursday, October 24, 2019|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||No issues. Tunnel Brook Road (still no signage at the jct. with 112) has been re-paved. |
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Leaves - Significant/Slippery |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Tunnel Brook is rock-hoppable at the moment. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||This was trail-work day on the Benton and the trail is in good shape.
Two areas to notice:
1) There is a blowdown section right at the Tunnel Brook crossing (came down in the Halloween storm 2 years ago). I have re-routed the trail around to the right of this section - to the point where the best crossing is any way.
2) A hanging section (caused by tropical storm Sandy) to the east of Tunnel Brook - between the brook and a relatively new logging road which cuts over the trail - is now fully on the ground. Easy enough to climb over for now and it will be removed at some point. |
||Great trail for canines and our dog - Brandy - had a great day. |
|Lost and Found:
||Found: One hiking pole - wedged between rocks right in the middle of Tunnel Brook. |
