Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A few large blowdowns including a duck under along the brook and one prior to the large switchback which now has a herd path around it (downhill, resulting in erosion). Lots of unmitigated erosion on the trail, particularly on the steeps, where the old roots are beginning to fail as the corresponding trees die off from the erosion.

Comments
Comments: Trail was mostly dry with the exception of the usual mud bogs (above relo 2) and wet ledge on the long switchback.

Decent number of hikers out, but not overly crowded.

Mostly cloudy morning with some humidity, but the summit remained in the clear (with fog engulfing the ridge to Vose Spur). Rain held off until some showers this afternoon.
