Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Upper crossing is high with snow melt - Not a rock hop - Took my boots off and used a log to stabilize myself that Is down stream of the trail - All other crossing are easily passable. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Drainage and ineffective water bars allowing water to flow down the first steep section of the trail beyond the largest water crossing. It was just like walking in a brook for about 100 yards or so. Only tree issue was climbing Flume out of the col, required crawling underneath branches

Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Lower section, followed a white snake that led through the leaves. A nice walk through the woods. The upper water crossing and the failed water bars were the only negatives. Mid to top, trail was significantly frozen, spikes all the way. About 3 feet or so of snow at Jct with FRT. Peaks of L and F are bare. A trudge going up and a fast trek coming down.
