Ascent Trip Report

I went out to my section of the Carrigain Notch Trail to check on conditions after Hurricane Sandy. There were a lot of blow downs. I left 6 or 7 good size ones for next time but limbed them so a hiker could go over or under easily. I removed many more from the trail. I also brought a hazel hoe for the first time and decided this is the tool for the water bars on this trail!
