Comments
Comments: Trails were dry with areas of mud especially on the Kenduskeag Trail. Lots of bog bridges to help avoid the mud. In and out of the clouds on the summits today limiting views a bit. Kenduskeag Trail between Rattle River Trail and Carter-Moriah Trail was in the worst shape with many blowdowns and tons of erosion.
