Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Drainage on lower part of Lonesome Lake Tr. seeping out and continuing 100 feet down trail to next drainage. Lots of nice work currently being done on Fishin' Jimmy Tr. by trail crew with steps, efforts to reduce trail widening, blow down removal etc.. Much appreciated! New signs at Hi Cannon jct. with Lonesome Lake Tr..  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Section on Kinsman Ridge Tr. between Cannon and the Cannonballs may be too much for some dogs on account of wet awkward scrambles. 
Bugs: No issues; no bug stuff used today. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Was a hat between the Kinsmans; hoping it belonged to those still at South Kinsman.  
Comments: This loop in nice shape today. There was some mud and wet trail but was drier than usual compared to my previous hikes on this side. Lots of work on Fishin' Jimmy which will improve this trail greatly. Actually met 10 people in the Cannonball area with half of them being part of a 50K event that was going on in the notch. Another great day in the mountains!
