Spent today completing the entire border trail. Worked clockwise, from mile 9. It is May and the trees are still sparse, but so much of the trail is unshaded, so be prepared with sunscreen. And, because of this, it's likely a very hot trek in the summer. Several climbs were quite steep, but afforded stunning views.

It struck me how well the trail was marked. I never once had a problem following the red blazes until about a mile from my car. Just after the bison, it was hard to tell where the trail continued. Even after I determined that, it was difficult to see the exact path to follow. There is a bit of construction in the area, so that's probably the reason. Just follow your map or GPS carefully in this area.
