Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The Gould trail appeared very well maintained. right at the beginning there is a slightly confusing point where the trail diverges and both are marked with the same blue blaze. The Cheshire Harbor Trail had standing/running water, especially just above the Cheshire/Gould cutoff trail. There's a point on the A.T. where a very temporary looking sign near the ground (paper inside a plastic sleeve) directs hikers at a junction "to Cheshire Harbor Trail Adams" - I assume this is a temporary sign until a permanent one gets put up.
