Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Three or four blowdowns on the Red Trail below Round Pond, three of which are about 6" in diameter (the other is bigger, but two people could probably push off the trail). Blazing has been improved recently. Some of the trails in the vicinity of Mack and Klem could use some brushing.

Bugs: ***Bee warning*** Ground bees were swarming on the Mack Ridge (Orange) trail a little above the large western viewpoint. I sprinted away fast enough to somehow not get stung. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a red Marmot fleece...left it near the little toolshed/tool box at the upper junction of the Red Trail and Round Pond Road (a few tenths below the pond). 
 
Comments
Comments: Trails were mostly dry and in good shape. Though foliage is still very much green, there were some fantastic colors on some trees and shrubs.
