People On The Trip

Trip Report

     Nate and I signed up for helping the 46ers clean up the Round Pond - Dix trail. We split into 3 groups (3 fast hikers with a chainsaw to the summit to work their way down, a group of 8 in-between to clear medium sized trees/branches, and a group behind with a chainsaw). There were some pretty big blowdown patches but it wasn't ever very sustained.

The Good and The Bad

The Good:

Great views from slide
Amazing trail marker inside of a tree where we cut with the chainsaw
The world's fanciest thunderbox

The Bad:

Didn't prepare to hike as far as we did
The amount of garbage in the leanto
Getting Nate within a few miles of finishing his 46 and then turning back to continue trail work

The Drive

Stayed at magic pines, used NY-8 both ways
