Comments: Trails in good shape with all blowdowns cleared. Took the BTTR trail which I believe is a bit longer than the service road but is in the shade which was a plus today. Saw Steve the creator of this trail and thanked him for his work.
Trails were not crowded, but had enough people to keep things interesting.
The sign at the GPS station between Rowe and Gunstock is interesting - it starts "This station is part of a network of over 875 stations installed across the western United States ...". I didn't know I hiked that far today.
