|Date of Hike:
||Friday, June 1, 2012|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||dropped a bike at oliverain brook trail and parked at pinebend brook trailhead. ran into a usfs law enforcement officer in the oliverian lot who mentioned there had been some break ins lately. good to see them out patrolling. |
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Mud - Minor/Avoidable, Mud - Significant, Standing/Running Water on Trail |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||water crossings were all ok. the large brook on passaconaway cut-off necessitated stepping in water which in my experience isn't unusual. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||a fair amount of blowdown along the route, most of it minor. selected a few for removal along the way. |
||bugs weren't a problem when moving, but the black flies found me whenever i stopped for too long. |
|Lost and Found:
||mostly dry trail except for the standard short bits of mud and wet trail. some wet ledge in spots.|
beavers have flooded the trail for a short stretch near the dam on oliverian brook trail.
i like carrying a water filter for this hike to top off along the way (the small brook below passaconaway being a favored spot).
such a great day to be out hiking. cool temps and nice views. very quiet up there today. one of my favorite loop hikes.
