Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Baker Pond Trail: One large birch down near the Hubbard Hill Trail junction; large duck under at the bridge over the inlet brook for Baker Pond. North Round Pond Spur: Incorrect mileage on sign (should be 0.2 instead of 0.1); becoming overgrown closer to the pond; blazing is older yellow and infrequent; several small blowdowns; I removed some deadfall. Reservoir Trail: Two widowmakers a short distance north of the Baker Pond Trail junction. Habitat Loop: Two small widowmakers on the South Woods Trail section.

Comments: Almost done with this Pisgah State Park mission I've been on. One more visit to complete hiking all the trails in the park plus maybe one or two more after that to double-check some guidebook stuff.

The trails were of course much wetter and muddier today after yesterday's rain. Some extended areas of mud in places.

At the height-of-land on Hubbard Hill Trail I took to the woods for the easy and short bushwhack to the Hubbard Hill summit. No jar/canister, but there is a piece of flagging with the hill's name and elevation on it.
