Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Gould trail isn't very well marked, easily could have gotten lost. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw a few dogs on the summit, thunderbolt trail is probably not safe given that it is peak mud season up here in Vermont and Western Mass. Gould trail is a good alternative for your canine. 
Bugs
Bugs: Very surprisingly there were no black flies out! It was a very chilly day though, well below freezing so it makes sense. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: None. 
 
Comments
Comments: Great view from the summit! We were annoyed to see the tower under construction but other than that awesome summit. Thunderbolt trail was extremely steep and had to take a different route down. No black flies prob for maybe a few days to a week from now because of the frost the next few nights.
