Since it was such a nice day, I decided to do a smaller, local hike after having done a few larger hikes in the last week.
The snowmobile trail was in good shape - recently widened, regraded, and hayed. The Bayle Mountain Trail was also in good shape - dry and freshly reblazed.
The views from the top were excellent as usual - it's easy to spend a lot of time there. While July had been a decent month in terms of log book entries, no one had signed it in the past ten days. Nonetheless, since I knew from my last visit that the book was filling up quickly, I brought up a new log book and pen, so that it will make it through the fall.
While there were a few mosquitoes out, they weren't an issue if you kept moving.
Another great day on Bayle Mountain!
