Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Tom used his saw and removed the Christmas tree that was blocking the trail by the burnt tree. A herd path had been forming around it over the winter. We remembered it from the February trip and thought it best to remove it. Trail is draining off pretty well too. We cleared a few water bars to help it along.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Met a couple. One very pretty sheltie who was happily trotting along. Another pup that the owner said,” isn’t friendly” good thing we were I guess.  
Bugs
Bugs: Some down on the lower part near water. Also, a couple aggressive gray jays bugging everyone at the tower for their lunch.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Nothing 
 
Comments
Comments: Hallelujah! Sawyer River road reopened this week. Beautiful warm and dry day to hit up this peak for spring/May. Several folks on the trail but not too crowded at all. We took the winter path up and I took the official route out just to see how the trail looked. All were in decent shape. Plenty of flowers blooming in the forest and bugs not too bad yet. Views were as magnificent as ever from the top.
