Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: First couple of crossings going up the Fire Warden's Trail required some creativity. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The stretch from Spaulding Campsite to Spaulding was littered with blow-downs. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Few dogs on Abraham, happy to be atop a giant pile of rocks 
Bugs
Bugs: Bugs like whoa on the middle stretch of the Fire Warden's trail. Not quite as bad on the way down to Caribou Pond Rd. but they seem to like the air from 2500-3000' right now.

Comments
Comments: Lovely traverse across the peaks of Abraham and the Spaulding/Sugarloaf ridge. Fire Warden's trail was wet and muddy in spots but trail maintenance there was generally decent. There was a stretch along the ridge between the side trail to Sugarloaf and before we started descending in earnest where the trail bed felt like a small stream. Fairly well blazed and easy to follow the entire way.
