Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Many! Most were crossable, but Sawyer River Trail has an unavoidable "pond" in the middle of the wetland area, and if taking the Sawyer Pond Trail from the Kanc, you'll have to ford the Swift River. I opted for the ski trail and Church Pond for a (maybe) easier ford, but was still up to my knees. Sabbaday Brook Tr has several water crossings one of which led to a turned ankle on slippery rocks.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Most of these trails were a bit of a mess with numerous blowdowns. In particular, the Livermore Trail from the Scaur heading down towards the Kanc is mix of washed out boulder fields and mud pits. Not so fun. It's that time of year.

Bugs
Bugs: Just a few starting to appear...give it a couple weeks and we'll be longing for winter again.

Comments
Comments: Beautiful spring day for a fun loop. Saw a barn owl around dusk, and not a soul in sight at Sawyer Pond (!). Still a fairly solid monorail above ~3800ft (and some patches in lower shaded areas) but it is on its way out. Spikes still recommended but you could get by without them.
