Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Small water crossings on the Liberty Spring Trail were easily crossed on rocks. Crossings in the notch were on wooden bridges. Left Pemi Trail at the Basin to walk the Bike Path. This avoided some river crossings further south on the Pemi Trail. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails in good condition. Trail crews have removed many tree falls except for a stretch of the Franconia Ridge Trail just south of Little Haystack. Hikers can go over, under, around these numerous tree falls. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw many dogs. Should carry water for the dog as the trails above tree line have very little water. Saw one dog on the Old Bridle Path that was exhausted. 
Bugs
Bugs: Not many. Even the walk along the Pemigewasset River in the evening had very few insects. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Saw sunglasses and bandanna at the Lincoln summit cairn. 
 
Comments
Comments: Great hike today. Good views along the ridge. Lots of hikers including Sleeveless and an AT Thru Hiker 13 from Springfield Mass. The Rhodora were in bloom on the ledges overlooking Walker Ravine on the Old Bridle Trail. There was a dead bird near the Mt Lincoln summit cairn. Hikers that came up the Flume Slide Trail said it was quite an adventure.
