Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Imp Trail is free from obstructions. The small wooden ladder is missing some rungs. A little erosion/trenching as trail ascends Imp Face. A couple of easy step-overs on North Carter Trail. Carter-Moriah fine except that, on the bog bridges that go through the small "meadow" between North Carter Trail and Middle Carter summit, a fair number of the nails are raised. Someone, sometime will trip on one of those.
