Surface Conditions
Surface Conditions: Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Standing/Running Water on Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable 
Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: None of significance. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: One or two stepovers remain on the Osseo Trail. Members of our group removed a couple on the Osseo Trail as well as one on Lincoln Woods Trail. The Osseo Trail is rapidly falling apart. The vast majority of the stone staircases are either failing or have failed. Lots of sections have unmitigated water flow due to no drainage. It's staggering to see how this once-relatively-smooth footbed is deteriorating. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes:  
Bugs
Bugs: Occasional deer flies, but otherwise not too bad.

Comments
Comments: Lincoln Woods Trail had some dry and muddy stretches from recent rainfall. Osseo was generally damp with areas of mud and running water, as well as slippery rocks. The short section of the Franconia Ridge Trail was also damp.

Congratulations to SilverFox on his total-knee-replacement-grid-finish.
