Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Webster Cliff Trail - there is one section of bog bridge past the Jackson Summit that has sunk beneath the mud! It was covered with some twigs - be careful navigating - if on the bog bridge the mud is a couple of tenths of an inch off and you're really in the mud! 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Mostly easy, saw a few canines needing help up and down the summit steeps, plenty of water along this route today. 
Bugs
Bugs: Out! Applied 100% deet numerous times - as I sweated it off the bugs of course found an opening to attack!

Comments
Comments: Trip to Jackson taking the long route back. For those on the webster cliff heading to Mizpah watch out for the sunken bog bridge - you'll know it by the twigs thrown on top. I used poles as probes to make sure I stayed on and avoided the depths off to both sides. Story of the day was mud on Webster Jackson and Webster cliff - mostly easy to navigate but a few spots that you just need to power through. Sank above my ankles a number of times. Been a while since I was on crawford path - there were a number of spots of running water that I didn't recall from past hikes but nothing can just walk on through. Mizpah and the tentsite both full on this day.
