Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Bottom section of Pumpelly Trail is not marked at all. Trail is relatively easy to follow, but I did take a wrong turn coming back down. Once the cairns start, it is pretty easy to follow from there. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: N/A at Monadnock State Park. 
Bugs: Black flies were definitely out in the middle section of the trail. Gnats as well. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: N/A 
Comments: Trail is completely clear of snow ice, except for some tiny pockets in shaded areas up top. A few stretches of mud at the bottom, but fairly easy to avoid. Running water down the steep section, and then on some rocks higher up.

If you're jonesing to ditch the spikes/shoes for a day, I'd 100% recommend hitting this trail up. At 9 miles round-trip, you'd almost think you were in the Whites. Great day to be outside on Monday.
