||Wet Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Standing/Running Water on Trail, Mud - Significant |

|Water Crossing Notes:
||a crossing just near the trail head was the only area that needed significant thought. I walked over it on a felled tree.
Elsewhere, rock hopping was needed and not too difficult. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Lots of dogs. All very friendly. |
||No notable bugs. Although, I wear repellent. |
|Lost and Found:
||Good news and bad news about the torrential rain yesterday. |
Good news is that the brook was running very fast and provided some fantastic scenery.
Bad news is that the trail had running water almost the entire way, and when there wasn't water there was mud.
I expected as much given how much rain we had.
The descent was kinda tricky given that everything was wet and slippery.
The rain washed out many roads on the westerly facing side of the Kinsman ridge (including Moosilauke).
All in all, a good day to be out hiking to see some amazing scenery. Unfortunately the summit was in the clouds when I was there.
