|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Four blowdowns on the Elwell Trail: two about 0.2 miles east of intersection with Back 80 (one stepover eSaw, one duck[limbo?]under Silky Saw); the other two within a half mile west of summit of Mowglis Mountain (one duckunder eSaw, one stepover Silky Saw) |
|Lost and Found:
||Found a section of a hiking pole on the Back 80 Trail, east of the cellar hole. We left it atop the trail sign, near the map kiosk, near the lodge. ||
||A (very) quiet Thanksgiving hike to wrap up some trailwork on the Elwell Trail between the Back 80 Trail and Mowglis Mountain.|
We finished some brushing and removed a half-dozen good-sized blowdowns. This section of trail is in good shape for winter; four remaining blowdowns can wait until there's better, snowshoe-able snow cover on the trail.
Beaver pond network visible from Elwell Trail viewpoint ledge is probably twice the size it's been for the past several years -- definitely active.
