Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Excellent. Nice, blue blazes. There is a blowdown right after the first scenic out look that will need to be taken care of. A few bog bridges need to be replaced. Signage was good. Kiosk had good info, but there is a schedule for some wonderful hikes taking place weekly in 2016. This organization has so many good things going on; you may want to check their website for the 2017 things. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw many dogs. Remember to carry enough water for them. 
Bugs
Bugs: NONE! 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Not really lost, but definitely found. An organization, Valley (I forget the second part of the name), has a series of hidden treasure boxes on various peaks in the area. It's there to encourage kids to get out doors more, etc. Good idea, but it was in a Tupperware box that allowed moisture to get in. Hopefully, the inside will dry out. Perhaps putting the things in a sandwich bag and then in the box would be better. 
 
Comments
Comments: Lovely moderate hike to a peak with great views. Gentle foot bed for the first half, beautiful ledges in the upper. Some open areas along the way with gorgeous ferns. Met a few NOBO's on top. Thanks to the Cross Rivendell folks for this nice trail!
