Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Some blowdowns on Pine Bend, but not even nuisance level except for their frequency. Scaur Ridge had a few you had to duck under. Everything else pretty clear. Kate Sleeper Trail is in great great shape. Whoever is maintaining that, you are awesome! It was a pleasure walking on your trail. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Dogs AOK just about everywhere, except maybe Walden Trail coming off Passaconaway which is gnarly enough if you have arms to grab stuff with. 
Bugs
Bugs: Oh yes. So many bugs. Biting ones. Mosquitoes, black flies, house flies, horse flies, void flies. Didn't resort to a face net, but it wouldn't have been out of place.

Comments
Comments: The hike is 22.0 miles total, but it's over at mile 15. Then it's just a 7 mile walkout, 5 miles on the nice enough but flat Oliverian Brook Trail and 2 on the Kanc. Some mud slop low on Pine Bend, a few splotches on Rollins, and more on Oliverian Brook Trail, but nothing really ugly, shoes stayed dry all day (til I slipped off a rock last crossing).
