Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Skyland Trail: Church Hill Road sign for start of trail obscured by trees. Woodland Trail: lots of blowdowns, largest 15" or so. Most will succumb to pruning saw or longer folding saw. Road paralleling beaver ponds heavily overgrown with grasses & weeds. One very recent huge blowdown on Holt just below Croo Bridge.

Bugs: Not bad! But then again, it's been pretty dry. Huge surprise: no ticks on us despite walking through grassy, overgrown area.

Comments: This was an AMC-NH Chapter trip. The goal was to hike Skyland to Rimrock to South Peak, then down via Hurricane Gap, Holt-Clark Cutoff, lower Holt with car spotting. Most of the group enjoyed the planned trip, but one participant with medical issues returned via Woodland with a couple of trip leaders, hence the trailwork notes.
