Trails
Trails: Holts Ledge Trail
Date of Hike
Date of Hike: Thursday, October 15, 2020
Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: On goose pond road, there’s a small trailhead that can fit three cars or so. You’ll see an AT hiker sign when you get there. Except for a Hunter who came as we were finishing up, we had the whole side of this mountain to ourselves 
Surface Conditions
Surface Conditions: Dry Trail, Leaves - Significant/Slippery 
Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: None, though there could be wet hazards by the beaver pond in rainy seasons 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: All good except for the big bridges at the beginning. Some of them are rotten out or destroyed and should be replaced. Leaves also caused a couple slips and falls due to obscuring roots.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Tons and tons of dogs at the top, though they came from the north side. They should be fine coming up this side though. 
Bugs
Bugs: I actually saw a few flyers today! Not biters though 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: No but we had a near scare. I lost my wallet coming up, but since the trail was empty I figured I would find it (and we did!). That would’ve been real bad 
 
Comments
Comments: Shockingly nice day for October, so we fitted in a nice little hike to an underrated peak. Everyone climbs from the north; we climbed from the south trailhead which is a bit tougher but pretty serene. Surprised to see that foliage was at peak colors, which was a nice bonus. The outlooks above the fence were nice but small and occupied, so plan accordingly on busy days. Enjoyed going to the top of the ski area, where you get a nice view of smarts mt from the racing shack.
