Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: On Scaur Ridge Trail upper .5 to .9 several duck unders or walk overs, nothing that was an impediment. In this area branches stretch across the trail from both sidesand eye protection is beneficial. They would also be pesky if it's wet or snowy. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: I believe dogs are to be leashed on the groomed x-c trails and poop must be bagged then removed. 
Bugs: the warm sun softened the track leading to sinking significantly even with snowshoes. It was not as bad when we hit Livermore Trail. There at the sign for the Tri[uramid loop/southern sign there seemed to be tracks that had taken that trail at least for awhile and their snowshoe tracks helped firm up the portion leading back to livermore Road x-c trail.

Comments: Plan was to hike these two Tri's via Scaur Ridge Trail and we figured on some re-breaking. I was happy this morning to see Uncle Bob's report and report in Steve's blog he referenced...thank you both! Yours efforts Saturday and Friday made our trip better than planned. We started early morning and it was chilly and quite windy. We wore snowshoes from the kiosk on. We saw no other hikers headed on our route. The chilly weather helped the trail stay firm in the morning. The x-c trail groomer came through as we neared the end of the groomed trail. We followed Scaur and had minor difficulty after the upper drainage was crossed. Shortly after prior tracks were blown in and we consulted our gps devices to get steered back onto the trail and eventually made it to the Scaur Ridge /Pine bend Brook Trail junction sign. Once on PBB we saw about 8 people, most in spikes. The steep ledges were grippy up to North. At the junction with Sabbaday two people were debating whether to take that trail down; it appeared they ended up taking it as there were fresh tracks when we came back from Middle. The advertised wind and windchill appeared as we ascended Middle. Some people used spikes ascending and descending Middle///dealer's choice. The descent was on Scaur Ridge exceptsignificant sinking in with the softened snow even in snowshoes. PBB had some postholes not terribly bad.
