Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: first crossing near campground - knee deep - I waded. Supposedly there is a tree crossing it upstream but I did't look too hard and did not find it!! Second crossing from campground was across an algae-slow stream - I crossed on logs that wanted to roll.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: as stated in other reports, the east side of the loop is a blowdown nightmare. I was short on time and jogged the loop, but, the east side was like hurdle after hurdle. As mentioned, bog bridges have almost rotted away. What remains are many large nailheads sticking up - be careful not to trip on them!!!!
