Nathan Richards and his family have just about completed the new
Sanguinary Summit trail. You can now follow it from the height of the
notch over the high country, then down to the Mud Pond access Road a
little south of Mud Pond. The last section needing work is a short moose
trail which is easily walked now.
The Long Mt. Brook Trail has been cleared of debris for two miles, up to
the point where the new Percy Peaks Loop Trail begins. The only thing
needed on the Long Mt. path is someone with a swizzle stick to whack
down the small maples and beech which are coming in. That's it.
The new Groveton Trailblazers snowmobile bridge over Nash Stream is a
must see. It is one hell of a bridge. Good views from it. A delightful
spot. Walk one quarter mile further uphill and you come to a great
clearing with some fine views.
Walked up the West Side Road to its end, then took the snowmobile trail
up up up and over Sugarloaf Arm and then down to the Sugarloaf Trail
head and the bridge over Nash Stream. At the height of land there is a
dramatic view of Sugarloaf itself. A little clearing up there and there
would be a fine resting spot for the weary.
A lone moose spent half the night snorting, I think to clear black flies
from its nose. What else?
White Mountain Lure bug dope works great. I splashed it all over and
saturated my hat brim. No black fly bites all day.
Jack Pepau and his son Chad have been working on the Bald Mountain
Trail, so have Wayne and Joyce Liptak. Looks like that trail is finished
Life is good.
