Comments
Comments: A fine muggy day in the forest. Noted lovely seemingly translucent painted trilliums in the first half mile or so. Trail is in fine shape and devoid almost completely of snow. There is one patch about 5 feet long. That's it. So take your snowshoes out for one last hurrah, if you're a glutton. They might miss you until October. Trail is mostly dry down low, water flowing up after the crossing a bit, and with the humidity, the rocks where sweating, offering several opportunities for cheap thrills. Lots out today with the same idea of a quickie in the rain.

We stopped at Wildlife Pond Trail on the way out (immediately past Sugarloaf TH on the right, on your way out) What a fine and gorgeous 0.25 mile spur. Spotted first rhodies, a beautiful bog bridge section, beavers and ducks.
