Route: Fire Road, Round Pond Trail, Round Pond-Piper Link, Red Trail, Red-Orange Trail, Orange Trail

With the exception of a short stretch of the Orange Trail below Mt. Mack, the trails were mostly dry and in good shape. Lots of leaves concealing rocks etc. Still some late fall foliage up in the trees. Orange Trail (north of Red-Orange Trail, heading to Round Pond) had some areas of standing water and is unappealing at this time due to logging.

State may also be logging in the vicinity of Fire Road-Round Pond Trail starting this week, but I didn't see any evidence of it this evening.
