Trail Maintainence on the NPT

Spent two days clearing 4+ miles of trail along the NPT between the Sucker Brook junction and Cedar Lake dam. Clearing blowdown with hand saws, and cleared drainages to allow water to better drain. Had to hike in 5 miles just to get to the section, then another mile to clean and assess the Colvin Brook lean-to. Had to ford the Cedar River knee deep to get to the lean-to. No log book entries since last October. Spent the night at Cedar Lake. Next day hiked out the 9 miles while pruning back the liw growth from the trail. As Chuck would say, "camping with a purpose." And much thanks to John H for lending a hand.
