Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: At the time of the hike, everything was incredibly easilly hoppable. After last nights rain, this likely is no longer the case 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: This post was mainly for the trail maintainers. There are a few minor blowdowns along all trails, nothing fall cleanup wont fix, aside from Pine Bend Brook where there is a double monster (axe or crosscut) about 1 mile in, from what I recall. There is still a good chunk of leaves on the trees along PBB and DB (Id say 33% or so). Still some greens and yellows. I am guessing last nights storm took some of them down, too. 
Dog-Related Notes

Comments
Comments: A fine day for a Death By Sandwich Traverse. We ascended via Downes Brook and then up the slide, popping up at the Passaconaway Outlook Spur, and scared someone who was not expecting to see someone pop out of the woods, especially that early. HELLO! From there we made short work of Whiteface, contimplated going out to Whiteface west, but it looked sprucey. Downes Brook actually had water when we looped back around after dropping off Whiteface. Grabbed East Sleeper for NEHH Grid and West Sleeper because it was right there. Tri's were busy, Scaur was not, ha ha. All trails in fine shape, aside from Pine Bend, which the trail bed was super ambigious with the leaf cover. It was actually pretty fun, it felt like a new trail.
