Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: There was one major tree downed between Mt. Surprise and the ledges, probably about 2-3 feet wide, blocking the entire trail. Many of the foot bridges that cross the bogs or either partially or entirely submerged meaning you have to jump from unstable log to unstable log 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes:  
Bugs: Tons of mosquitoes between Mt. Surprise and the summit, particularly in the parts where you are going up and down those false summits.

Comments: Watch out on the ledges after Mt. Surprise. Many of the slabs are soaked in water, which are fun on the way down. Try to look out for the side trails around there because they mostly avoid the more dangerous parts. Make sure to bring summer gators or even long pants because it is almost impossible to not be covered in mud by the end of this.
