||Dry Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable, Mud - Significant, Snow/Ice - Small Patches |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Larger ones are bridged. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||We cut out a blowdown on the Carriage Road. A moderate sized one remains on Gorge Brook just above the top bridge, and there are one or two on Hurricane. Hurricane bog bridging is deteriorating. Significant unmitigated erosion on Gorge Brook and Carriage Road. |
||Not an issue early due to cool temps, but vexing when stopped by mid-morning. |
|Lost and Found:
||Gorge Brook Trail had some mucky spots, but was generally dry. Some insignificant patches of monorail ice prior to treeline.|
Carriage Road had a few insignificant patches of monorail ice prior to the Glencliff junction. Amazing how much softer/smoother the footing is immediately below the Snapper junction. A few mud pits further down.
Hurricane Trail was mostly dry with mostly good footing. Lots of wildflowers, including wood anemone.
Beautiful morning with blue skies and temperatures climbing into the upper 60s. Not particularly busy via this timing/order of trails.
