Great weather has partially dried out the Long Trail from the Smuggler’s Notch Picnic Area through Elephant’s Head trail to Serling Pond.

The walk down the Sterling Pond Trail to Rt. 108 had plenty of water on it and several of hikers who looked wet and muddy in their sneakers. Some erosion from the rain is evident in places on this trail.

Sterling Pond was spectacular and there were many visitors. The GMC caretaker Hillary was busy greeting visitors and taking notes… is she writing a book?
