Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Only water on this route is at the beginning of the Old Bridle Path and about a mile before the end of Liberty Spring. The last 1/2 mile to the Greenleaf Hut and about 1/4 of a mile after the hut has significant ice. Some sections are not easy to bypass and will/could be difficult for dogs (no Cinnilla today because of the ice concerns). 
Bugs: Actually spotted 3. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a pair of gloves (Black, Mountain Hardwear) at the Greenleaf Hut. Please e-mail me if they are yours. 
Comments: Except for the short ice sections around Greenleaf Hut trail-conditions are perfect right now. Used microspikes for only 10-15 minutes but they are worht bringing for just that short usage.
