The Gorge Brook Trail reroute
The Gorge Brook Trail reroute

Route: Gorge Brook Trail, Carriage Road, Snapper Trail

Trails were mostly dry and in good shape. Some minor mud on the reroute of Gorge Brook as well as Snapper. Interesting to see what they've done to the footbed on the Gorge Brook reroute (removed all of the organic soil and some of the roots, leaving a 1-1.5 foot deep trench with limited drainage thus far...can't imagine it's pleasant walking in a downpour).

Nice afternoon to be on the summit. Breezy but comfortable.
