|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||Back 80 Trail|
|Date of Hike:
||Tuesday, October 3, 2017|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||No problem at lodge |
||Dry Trail |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Only one of half a dozen streams had any appreciable water. Looks like a beaver may be getting ideas about building a dam. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||13 blowdowns: 11 on ground and easy step-overs, 1 about chest high (used to be higher), 1 large on ground with a path developing around it. Drains cleared, but will need more once leaves are down. Sign damaged at Elwell junction -- bear? |
|Lost and Found:
||Many thanks to the AMC teen crew who built a small bridge over the outflow from the easternmost beaver pond. Likewise for the removal of old corduroy and installation of puncheons and turnpiking along a wet area.|
The trail between the lodge and the Short Circuit has unfinished rock water bars and other drainage.
