Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: We were the first ones parked at the northern end of Imp Trail; spotted a car at 19-Mile Brook trailhead where the lot was about half full just before 6:00 AM. Both lots are roadside parking, I recommend backing in for an easier exit.

Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Easy rock hopping, water was low. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: North Carter trail is very overgrown - lots of pushing evergreen branches out of the way, even at eye level. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Water available at the beginning and end, generally OK for dogs used to hiking. Hiking partner's dog that was with us did great even though it was a super hot day. He loved jumping in 19-Mile Brook on the way out. 
Bugs
Bugs: Not as bad as the past few weeks but I did get about 7 or so bites - which is very few for me. Bug spray with deet helped. 
Lost and Found

Comments
Comments: There's a nice spot for soaking your feet just before the end (bottom) of the Carter Dome trail, right next to the trail with just a 2-foot hop down the bank. There is also a crossing farther up on the Carter Dome trail that would be a good spot but as it's also part of the trail I recommend the lower spot.
