Mountain Roads on Frye
Clayton is up on the mountain doing some ditching work. It is looking good. There is a toilet now near the Rt. 220 entrance. A lot of people hike the area, or ride horses there. Of course, now on the weekends, as hunting season is soon on us for deer hunting. A black bear was spotted near the area recently with a game camera. I heard several moose are in the area as well.
