Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: From the point where big rock cliff on Left to the slide, two big issues. Just after the cliff is a section where many big slabs of rock have shifted. Above that is a long section where trail is turning into a gravel slide. When you can see tons of small rocks off the side into the woods that is a problem. In addition to that some side trails to avoid the mess are just making it worse. Lots of work needed to turn it around. The gully just below ridge is getting worse. Be careful on broken bog bridges on Greeley Pond Trail. I slipped off a broken one and went up to my knees in mud. Yuck.
