Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Fall trail cleanup today. All water bars cleaned and about 10 or so blowdowns removed. Blowdowns ranged from small to large. I went as far as time would allow me to today making it to West Tecumseh. A couple passing hikers said that there are approximately 6 more blowdowns between the peaks. I will try to make a return trip this fall to get them cleaned up.

Comments
Comments: The trail was generally damp with an occasional dry spot. Some areas of mud and more significant mud in the usual places. Spent lots of time trying to get the muddy/wet areas to drain better. Some crunchy mud (partially frozen) nearing the summit of West Tecumseh. Several blowdowns remain according to some passing hikers that I hope to get back to this fall before the snow really hits. No ice or snow encountered today.
