Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Lot's of significant creek crossings. All easy now because water is very low and calm. Consider this factor for future planning 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Downes Brook trail is somewhat washed out. About a third of the trail was like a stream bed. The Kate Sleeper Trail is very grown in. The bushes obscure the well defined trail underfoot.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: 2 groups, 3 dogs. The dogs were threatening. Although in both cases, the dog's humans explained away their furry pals antisocial behavior, IT WAS STILL THREATENING. I know this site is frequented by hikers, and I think that the aforementioned dog's humans are not novice hikers, so.. and p.s. The National Forest rule for dogs is that they shall be leashed. That is posted at the trailhead kiosk.  
Bugs
Bugs: Present, but not biting. Thank You!!!

Comments
Comments: Hiked a long way to pick up a little spur trail, but greatly enjoyable regardless. The trails are in pretty good condition overall. So Downes Brook is washed out, it's an expected outcome. All but one of the many blowdowns were easily passed.
