The purpose was a trail inventory of man-made features and improvements, to help justify future budget requests. Plus we did a little blowdown clearing, pulled the leaf blockages out of a couple of culverts, and last but not least, cleaned the Toms Run privy where apparently paperless users had wiped their sh*t on the walls.
Anyway, The Real Thing That Actually Exists:

Next trip will be a blaze painting excursion. There are a number of sections along "our" trail where the blazes are a bit sparse. Plus I tend to be blaze-happy, leaning toward too many rather than too few...because I've been on the route-finding end where a dearth of blazes was most frustrating.
