Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Only three blowdowns: one large one just to the east of the Croo Bridge on the Holt Trail; one medium-sized one a bit further up (on the Cutoff, I believe) and then one massive one a bit further up on the Clark Trail. I think that two of these have fallen in just the past week.

Comments: Trails are in pretty good shape -- much drier than last week, with just a few wet and muddy spots and small patches of standing water. Above PJ Ledge and up to the Ranger Cabin on the Clark Trail are numerous patches of running water and thin layers of ice -- very slippery before sunrise but probably melted and mostly dry by now. A few snow drifts and ice patches beyond the cabin and up to the summit, but plenty of clear, dry spots for good traction. Very windy this morning at sunrise on the summit.
