Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Very nice recent brushing on Mt. Frissell Trail near Mt. Washington Road. Only small issue was a fairly large blowdown of a formerly live tree branch on top of a dead blowdown on the Mt Frissell Trail near the side trail to the small pond. This has turned into a walkaround/stepover. This is on the MA part of the Mt. Frissell Trail about halfway between Round Mountain and Mt. Frissell.

Bugs: There were occasional black flies, but they don't seem to be hungry yet, so not a problem.

Nice hike to bag highest summit in CT, as well as the true CT highpoint and also the tristate marker. A pleasant hike with fine weather. Nice views to the Catskills. My thanks to Lone Wolf.
