Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Blazes were hard to spot at the first open rock area heading up counter-clockwise (where there are signs warning against stepping on fragile plants and logs cordoning off fragile areas.) I passed through here on my clockwise descent first, and wandered off-trail for a few minutes seeking blazes.

Comments
Comments: Did the loop twice from 12:30pm-6pm to prep to knock out the last of the 4,000footers this summer. Trails were crowded in the earlier part of the day, but very few other people after 2:30pm or so. Plenty of mud for the first ~1.5mi going counter-clockwise, and the bare rock around the summits was often wet (ice is long gone though.) Proper hiking boots recommended, folks!
