Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: the 10 crossing on downes brook were an adventure. the water was just a bit too high. other crossings in other places were fairly tame.

Comments
Comments: great day to do these two. i did the big loop so as not to redo the 10 crossings on downes brook tr. it was a long and hard 15.5 miles. i was last on these guys 5 years ago and i'm feeling it more. anyway, i now have 32 of the 48 at 70+. in passing the trailhead for owls head & bondcliff, there must have been 100 cars along both sides of the road in both directions! this was at 3pm. the parking lot was full at 5:15 am!
