Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The only major crossing was easily rock hopped. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The Waterbury Trail was in good shape. The Skyline Trail, at least from Mt. Hunger to North Hunger, was lightly trodden, muddy, and overgrown in spots. The trail up White Rock was lightly trodden in places as well, but not to the degree the Skyline Trail was. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Very popular place for dogs, it seemed. Not a whole lot for water other than that one brook crossing, so bring some extra H2O for your furry friends. 
Bugs
Bugs: Not a problem on Hunger, but a minor annoyance on North Hunger and White Rock Mountain.

Comments
Comments: The Waterbury Trail was much steeper than I thought it would be, gaining around 2,300 ft. of elevation in about two miles. Some fun scrambles near the top, as well. Wouldn't recommend going to North Hunger unless you're comfortable with a short but nasty bushwhack. The toughest scrambles of the day were right below White Rock's summit, but they were worth climbing, since the best views of the hike were arguably from White Rock Mountain. Great hike in the Green Mountain State!
