Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Few blowdowns that have around for a while; nothing significantly rerouted around. Cleared a waterbar and a slot in ledges which stopped water flow down in a tricky spot in the tower section. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: As ckeller stated in Sept. there is bear activity; probably not an issue when trails are busy. Another local told me he has seen more bears than usual this year on south end of Catamount Tr. down lower. 
Bugs: Have been out with warmer weather but no biters.

Comments: Another great view day today. Trails wet with lots of leaf cover. Must have showered fairly hard last night because road section got beat up a bit. Quiet, week day morning. Ridge Tr. easily followed this weekend despite leaf coverage (a concern with a few hikers I talked to).
