Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: As of late afternoon, all water crossings were rock hoppable, despite the heavy rain. Rocks wet/slippery, of course. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: One small blowdown on Hancock Notch Trail, a few very small ones on Hancock Loop. Due to downpour, did not bother to cut them up myself. The two mud bogs around Middle/South Hancock keep on getting worse (have noticed this over the last 6 months) - herd paths joining the bogs. Really need bogwalks badly before it gets any worse.

Comments
Comments: All trails very wet and muddy (more so than normal) - not much drainage in place for a rainy day. Some great foliage colors in a few places, especially the last major water crossing.
