|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Standing/Running Water on Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable, Mud - Significant |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||I consider that there are 3 crossings using this route. All doable. As the Sunday report indicated. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||All clear. The usual logs across on the section above the slide. |
||Greeted by mosquitoes while booting up in the parking lot. Slathered on the bug dope and kept moving only stopping once about 1/2 way up Brutus. Cooler temperatures and steady breeze from there on so I could go at a more leisurely pace.
Didn’t experience black flies or deer flies. |
|Lost and Found:
||Yep, Brutus is steep but so is the slide. I managed to descend Brutus AND remain upright with very little slipping even with the slick ground. Just had to be wicked careful. |
Why can’t all BWs be as pleasant as the Black Pond BW???
