Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The first two crossings of the Little River can be bypassed via the herd path. Both of these crossings looked difficult. The third crossing of the Little River was easiest by shimmying across the downed tree and on adjacent rocks in the river. Other options appeared to involve rock hopping on rocks of which some were wet and irregularly shaped which presented the risk of slippage in to the strong current. All other brook crossings were minor and easy on rocks. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails in good condition. Some downed trees on the bypass which did not pose any difficulties. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw some dogs. The dog must be able to cross the stream. 
Bugs: Some bugs when close to the Little River. Wound up with two in the eye and one in the throat. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Trails were well worn including the herd path. The herd path up Mt Hale was also obvious. The crossing of the Little River should be easier after a dry spell. Only some mud spots here and there which often had embedded rocks so the boots kept dry.
Unfortunately there were no views on North Twin but luckily there was some intermittent clearing while on South Twin allowing views to the Bonds, Carrigain, Zealand, Flume, and Liberty.
