Trail Maintenance Notes

Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Pretty good dog trail. Slopes are moderate and for the most part shaded, there are seeps every so often up to Osceola. Over to East Osceola its BYOB. It could use a nice brook near the bottom for dippin'. The mighty tough little dog was so disappointed with the seeps at the end; so when I got home we rushed down to our brook for a good dip. There were dogs of all shapes, sizes and colors on the trail today, and lots of them. The white dogs got black boots from the mud pits. 
Bugs
Bugs: None.

Comments
Comments: Summer is back. A bit hazy on the views which otherwise are great. Lots of people and dogs on Mt. Osceola section , including families with young children, the youngest being 5. Only met 3 guys and a dog between the peaks. Had two short but nice meetings with Old Man in this section. He doesn't look old, whereas I look exactly like Me. This is one of my favorite "half day" hikes; I can't wait to do it with crunchy leaves underfoot and colors above.
