Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: There were only a few water crossings, but there were a lot of rocks which made them easy to cross. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: These trails were exceptionally well marked (kudos to the maintenance crews!). We ran into what appeared to be fresh blowdowns along Rollins trail after the (true) summit of Whiteface which made navigating a little difficult. There were large trees and debris completely covering the trail. Something wicked definitely went through there. I've got pictures I'm willing to share if anyone wants to see what they're up against. The blowdowns didn't make the trail impassable, but ti did become treacherous and you really had to keep and eye out for trail markers.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: There were several dogs along the trails that day. 
Bugs
Bugs: LOTS and LOTS of bugs! Black flies and May flies were out in full force. There were also a lot of Tiger Swallowtail butterflies out and about.
