Comments
Comments: WMNF rangers left notices on vehicle windshields requesting hikers to close the the unlocked gate at the entrance to Sawyer River Road as they left in order to discourage use of the access road during the storm.



Many hikers on the trail. Trails were in good shape prior to the storm.



Saw Turtlehead and Touch-me-Not flowers in the moist areas on the trail as it paralleled Whiteface Brook. Also Asters and Goldenrod. Hobblebush, Mountain Ash, and Trillium berries. Saw a couple of maple trees with the foliage beginning to turn color.
