Water Crossing Notes

Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The trails were in good shape considering the storm earlier in the week. At the first bridge on Manning, the upstream guardrail log was pushed to the downstream side of the bridge; and there were some deep holes on the trail. But those are easily avoidable. And then a single blow down shortly after, which was easy to step over. But that was the worst of the damage that I saw. After that, mainly just needing drainage cleared, and a few muddy sections. I talked to a few people that had hiked other trails in the area, and it sounded like a few blow downs here and there, which were easily avoid. So it didn't sound like any major problems at least for trails at Mt Cardigan.
