Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Two water crossing on the lower half of Carter Dome;both rock hoppable. The second water crossing on the way up is difficult to know where the trail goes. Its a bit tricky. If you cross to the middle section and then heap up a little and cross again you will find it. It is not obvious.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The trail was better than last year with blow downs someone has been doing clean up thank you.. There are still quite a bit you have to jump over or go under in a few places. There is one section where its hard to follow the trail the bush has falling and is cover the trail. Branches catch your head if you are not careful. A few people bonked themselves on trees :) The mud is everywhere some places its unavoidable and deep. Some of the trail still has flowing water and mud on rocks.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Quite a few muddy pups on the trail they didn't seem to mind.  
Bugs: Bugs are terrible throughout, they are out to get you. Had some relief late afternoon toward the bottom of 19 mile brook.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: There is a single glove on the trail head sign.  
Comments: Overall it was a great hike. I love the 19 mile brook tail water sound most of the way its beautiful. The trail at the bottom is flat and easy to follow its like a nice walk in the woods. The rest of the trail conditions while not optimal for mid June were more like early spring. Lots of mud, some very small patches of snow on the ridge, bugs galore, and blow downs. We were all very dirty when we finished. The summits of both mountains are not spectacular there is a look out on the ridge that looks at the presidential that is beautiful.
