Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: crossing on Gale River Trail on reroute of no issue. Upper crossing of little river on North Twin Trail took a big step but emerged with dry boots. we were upstream a bit from the blowdown. Avoided lower crossings with herd path 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Gale river trail reroute hardening off nicely with only a couple of muddy spots. Frost trail has some brush and could use some love. North Twin trail down from the view ledge shows some severe erosion in places, recent work noted on some blowdowns and a bog bridge and a few cleared water bars..brushy in spots. Herd path around lower crossings on North Twin Trail should be blazed and just move on..best trail footbed of the day
