On the ASB trail in Harriman State Park, south of Island Pond, in the section of trail between the two Island Pond Roads: The wet area through which there is pond drainage has gotten much wetter. Some digging on the downstream side might permit faster drainage; it looks as if stepping stones are also needed.

Due to continued hemlock death, there are many large blowdowns on the ASB trail south and east of Island Pond in Harriman State Park. I counted 13 on May 7th (not all huge, but many are) between approximately 41°14'44.7", -74°08'31.7" and 41°15'08.0", 74°08'08.9" (coordinates from Avenza map; hope they're accurate).

You probably already know about this, but just in case: large blow down on ASB, at 41°14'51.7", -74°08'21.2" Photo: https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipMv-05axe0uZMmM9Y90dfckueBp8IqRhxHa... Walk arounds are difficult and messy. Thank you!
