Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All rock-hop'able. A-Z trail crossings were quite easy - could almost walk right across given the water was so low 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Some blowdowns on A-Z. One hanger. It was broken off and hanging higher in a tree tangle. Couldn't shake it down. Be careful. Zero to report on the other two trails. Looked like brand new signs everywhere  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Plenty out. Not sure how a small one was going to get down the Willey ladders 
Bugs: Some throughout. Bug repellent took care of most. More was needed on A-Z. It was a bit darker, cooler, and muddier generally

Comments: A really nice day for a hike. Tons of people and animals on Tom, Willey, and Field. Willey was pretty trafficked while the other two were a bit more open with the occasional hiker passing. Trails were all in really good shape. Some mud and puddles here and there but it could be avoided or was an inch or so straight through at times. River crossings were very easy even after the rain the day before. It was all abc out there and just some nice weather and amazing views from the 302-facing opening near Willey peak
