Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All easy to cross, since I was last on the trail, an Eagle Scout has built a bridge over what was the largest crossing that was unbridged prior to July 2019 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The south section of the Shenipsit Connector that used to lead to Boulder Junction has been rerouted and now joins the Shenipsit Trail a little north of Boulder Junction. A few large trees are down in spots, likely from the recent wind storm as my local trail had damage done on 4/2 or 4/3. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw a couple closer to Case Mountain as hikers on those trails had dogs. 
Bugs: They have begun to show but not biting yet.

Comments: Great day to be out, saw several people either solo or just a couple. At Case Mountain, there were a couple of small groups of three or four, they could have been families. People did practice social distancing.
