I beg to differ. Why pave the trail where it isn't needed?
IIRC, that is one of those areas that would remain soggy well into the season and also for a much longer period than the rest of the trail after a rain.
I enjoyed the section with the couple of rocks and the logs layed down into the mud, rather than a long boardwalk I think it would have been cool to stick with the tech that was already in that section by adding rocks instead. Maybe not as sustainable, but the boardwalk feel isn't for me and doesn't fit well with what highland is. IMO.
I do agree it is a good improvement/solution to a problem, i'd just rather see less paving and more creative ways to keep the rocks and tech that a trail has grown to have.

The rocks and roots were moist and slippery and I fell going downhill over some rough spot. What can I do other than practice? 1st time there after doing Bishop Lake-Murphy Lake, Mayberry , Island Lake, Olsen. feeling tentative.....
