Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Carter Moriah in great shape. Kenduskeag has many blowdowns both step overs walk unders and a few on trail laying on broken bog boards requiring walk around. some of the blowndowns within a 1/2 mile of Mt Moriah could use a chainsaw or a hefty ax master. Shortly before summiting Shelburne Moriah and just before a small bog there is a short muddy section of trail that appears shallow but is knee deep mud. I learned today its never to early to posthole. Shelburne Trail in good shape with a few knee high blowdowns and a few smaller stepovers. noticed some flagging for future trail work im guessing

Comments: An excellent day to finish an exciting backpacking trip through the Wild River Wilderness and beyond.it was nice meeting the 2 NoBos again as well as a section hiker. Only saw 2 others on the trail to SM. i truly hope you missed the knee deep mud hole that i encountered. 🙃
