Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Blueberry Ledges Trail has no blowdowns. Rollins got beaten up during the recent storm and has 11 new blowdowns. Happily 9 of then are 5” diameter or less, one is 8” and then there is a 12”+ that is laying flat on the ground and really doesn’t need intervention (IMHO). The blowdowns start 0.3 miles south of the Dicey’s junction and end 0.5 miles north of the Whiteface summit (the cairn). If I had had my saw with me I could have taken care of 10 of them; I am sorry that I left it in my car! Dicey’s is clear of blowdowns and thank you for that VERY recent saw work on that mosnter that is below the Wiggins junction. That was a lot of work!  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: I saw three.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: I hiked Whiteface so that I could see the beautiful sunrise from the ledges on Blueberry Ledges Trail. It was a great decision. I barebooted Blueberry Ledges to the Wiggins junction and then pulled on Hillsounds. I took them off when I got to the scrambles because the ledges were bone dry, but pulled my Hillsounds on again just below the chimney. I kept them on from there and across Rollins as the ice was fairly consistent until the last quarter mile before Dicey’s. However I am glad that I left them on because they were helpful down Dicey’s until 0.3 miles above the water crossing. That’s when I stowed them for the final time. Yay that the logs made it through the storm. It was mud/ice/running water on the trail from the water crossing down to the farm.
