Owl's Head -11th Round
4th Summit in 2015
Trail Conditions:The route was free of snow except for a few small patches up on the summit ridge. The crossings after the bushwhack were easy. The trail was pretty easy to follow beyond the Brutus Bushwhack to the slide. The slide had some loose gravel and rock mostly at the bottom, but not as much moving rocks up higher. The path leading to the true summit was also easy to follow. There was one little push through of a blow down I recall. It was unfortunate on my return trip past Black Pond that I saw multiple occurrences of toilet paper and human poop literally right next to the trail where the Black Pond Outlook is. Perhaps the lone large group camping at Black Pond. Would be nice to at least bury it, pack it out, or have some consideration for others' enjoyment of the woods. Until next time!
