Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails in great condition. Some trimming required just uphill of Slide Peak but not a big problem. Tuckerman Ravine Trail has many new rock steps which eased the descent. There was some water on the upper portion of the Tuckerman Ravine Trail which could be a problem when the temperatures fall below freezing.
