“A long trail through the primordial forest, maintenance is needed and planned.”
— Steve Jones
Be aware of hunting seasons.
This is a long trail. Some sections are in good shape (Nature Center to intersection with Fork Mountain Trail
- East Section and from intersection with Frosty Gap #235
trail to Eagle Camp Trail #259
) as of Sept, 2017, while other sections are in need of serious maintenance.
The sections that need some help tend to be soggy, muddy bogs. There are quite a few of these portions, and they can make the trail difficult to navigate. Elsewhere, the trail surface is manageable, but the local brush tends to overgrow the trail.
There is a maintenance plan for the section from the Frosty Gap #235
trail to the horse camp above Summit Lake, which if funded, should happen in the summer of 2018. Watch comments for the outcome of that project.
