Construction site is very active.
In A.M.,I went along service road at base of lodge construction with no issues.(not sure if that is still permissable)There is a sign on uphill side mentioning construction site is closed to foot traffic. Used the many footpaths around the new cabins to gain the main road on the way out.?????
The main excitement was watching a school bus backing down the entire Ravine Lodge Road.
Lots of folks out due to Dartmouth reunion week.
Went clockwise up Snapper and Carriage Rd. trails. Was alone to South Peak and walk along ridge to main Summit.
Encountered many Dartmouth Alumni on the summit and descending along Gorge Brook Trail.
Great conversations with many. Great day out with clear skies and nice views.
