Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails are in good shape. For Vistamont and Woodland Trails, see our notes from the past week or so. Clark Trail is in excellent shape -- drains recently cleaned and, in some cases, re-dug. Skyland Trail has some deadfall here and there (we cleared as much as we could), and two blowdowns of note: one is the top portion of an old/rotted hardwood, just east of Grafton Knob (requires more breaking/moving/small saw work than anything else); the other is a large softwood about 0.1 miles east of Church Mountain (requires large saw). Both blowdowns can be bypassed with short walk off-trail.

Comments: Light traction was very helpful on the upper ledges of the Vistamont Trail, heading toward Orange Mountain. Once on the southern-exposure Skyland Trail, ice was not a problem.
