Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The crossing of Flat Mountain Pond Trail at the Wilderness boundary is low and easily rock-hoppable. Best crossing is at the pillar where the old bridge was. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: There are 4 major blowdowns, all of which can be traversed over or under, no need to bypass around them. Some brush is growing in as spring progresses, but the trail corridor is easy to follow. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Great route for dogs! Minimal scrambling and plenty of water below 2000 ft. 
Bugs
Bugs: Black flies and mosquitos aren't too bad yet but will be soon. Worst areas are in the parking lot and road walk on Flat Mountain Pond Trail. Much better after crossing the river. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: There was a gray sweatshirt hanging on the gate at the parking lot. 
 
Comments
Comments: McCrillis trail has some minor mud patches, none of them deeper than about 4 inches. Easy to walk through with waterproof boots and some rock-hoppable. There are some short sections with running and standing water, but overall both trails are very dry and in excellent condition.
