Comments
Comments: Maintenance on the Bennington Trail today was the goal. Here is what was accomplished: Cleared some fallen branches and a few smaller blowdowns. Washout gullies on the last push to the summit were filled in with debris to slow further erosion. Clarified route at the summit due to many unmarked herd paths everywhere. Old faded metal trail markers were removed and the entire trail is now blazed in light blue!

More work to be done into next year but please come and enjoy the trail. It was a beautiful day on the mountain!
