Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: a few water crossings. Would definitely recommend higher cut waterproof boots for Falling Waters. Could get away with trail sneakers for sure, just be ready to do a lot of rock hopping/ avoidance as Falling Waters has certainly earned it's name. None on other trails mentioned.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trail's in great shape. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: saw a couple of dogs. One Westie (small terrier) 
Bugs: pesky black flies per-usual. kept moving to avoid them. None really on the ridge since there was a brisk wind. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Sunscreen is a great idea if you're out on the ridge in the sun for a while. Ridge is very exposed to weather.

I would not have gone down Falling Waters, it was consistently steep with plenty of technical trail alongside waterfalls/ brooks. Greenleaf has snacks and a faucet for water re-fills. Old Bridle was a nice decent.
