Smuggler's Notch work hike

Six volunteers (including new volunteer Mike W., thanks Mike!) met at MHS to carpool for the 45 minute drive to the Notch. Thanks to excellent scouting by Fred J. prior to the event we decided to focus on the LT/Elephant's Head from the picnic area north. Three volunteers worked on cleaning drainages up to the first slide. Three others worked on clipping above the first slide. Much needed clipping opened the trail to standard width. Half of the group finished the day at noon. The other half were off the trail by 3:00PM.
