Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Low water levels on the few crossings (close to trailhead) made for straightforward rock hopping. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Blowdowns on upper part of A-Z trail approaching the Mt Tom Spur (new), as well as right at the A-Z/Tom Spur intersection (new), and on the spur tr itself (not new). Then some others along WRT, especially between Tom and Field (new). Trail is heavily eroded on WRT descending Field towards Willey.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw a few 
Bugs: Negligible due to colder temps, though some appears later in the day towards bottom of A-Z/Avalon Tr. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: A dog pack/harness at the intersection for Mt Tom spur, looks like it had been there a while, as well as a large folded blanket at the Mt Tom summit. 
Comments: CCW loop to visit the peaks, barely any snow to speak of other than a few short sections between Field and Willey. Didn't bring or need traction. Cloudy/misty day yet I still crossed paths with a dozen other hikers. Parked at the Depot, no problem.
