I'm surprised nobody else has posted about this since the project that brought power to the summit also left a huge scar next to the cog tracks.
As I originally feared it looks like they have done nothing above treeline to restore the natural look of the terrain they disturbed. They filled the ditch back in, but didn't replace the large rocks or the dirt patches that have been building up over the past 8,000 years or so.
It looks like a road that somebody could easily drive an ATV up paralleling the cog. Even worse, I saw people hiking up this new "trail." Not sure I blame them either. It's as smooth as a road and takes a direct line to the summit.
On top of that the state hasn't restored the original entrance to the Sherman-Adams building or removed any of the skeletal foundations left on the summit.
