Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails are in great shape overall. In the first 1200 ft of GB Trail there are two sets of blowdowns obstructing the trail. On Davis Path there are several blowdowns most of which are leaners and with the exception of two they easily can be walked under. Those two are duck unders. The rest of blowdowns are low to the ground and easy stepovers. An incredible amount of work has been done since I was on this trail on July 4th.The Jewell Trail is completely free of blowdowns as well. There a few heavy mud sections beginning past Isolation trail west. Many rotten slab bridges.

Comments
Comments: Beautiful day to hike-Light crowds and breeze. I met only four other hikers up until Crawford Path. The water at the outside spigot at Mt Washington tasted better than usual. It was nice to see absolutely no trash on the trail until descending on the Jewell Trail and even then it was light compared to many other trails lately. I packed out a mask,couple of candy wrappers, a skoal bandit,and a pair of tights. Vinyl gloves and large freezer bag worked well
