Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Most trails were well-used and clear. Judson Pond faint especially at the beginning with few blazes until the creek crossing. Had to keep a close eye on where the next blaze might be. Also two sections where the trail goes through some high ferns and grass but you can see where the trail goes.

Comments: Did this to get the Judson Pond Trail for a redline. Figured might not be too wet due to the drought. Worked out for the most part except for the dew on the grass as we started up Scudder. Judson Pond fairly easy to follow if you are vigilant. When you reach the first stream crossing, you will see a cairn and a blaze on a tree on the other side indicating you need to cross, not climb. Pointer: when you reach the bottom of the col, there is a blowdown over the trail. Just go around, then cross the brook. You will see a yellow blaze on the opposite side of the brook. That blowdown is a good point of reference on the way back up as well.
