Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails in good condition. There is a washout spot extending in to the Lincoln Woods Trail near the fencing. Easy to avoid. Osseo had many fallen trees with most on or near the ground. One birch is about 2 feet above ground but not difficult to step over. There are two small evergreens across the upper portion of the Osseo Trail. A bypass path is setting up around this obstacle. The stairs are in good condition on the Osseo Trail. Some of the bog bridges above the stairs are in poor condition. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Fine for dogs. 
Bugs: Not many until early evening on the Lincoln Woods Trail. Not bad unless you stop. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Only two short patches of snow in a low spot between Mt Flume and Mt Liberty. Easily side stepped. No need for winter footwear.
Saw Lady's Slippers, one red trillium, and one bluebead lily down low on the Osseo Trail. Saw lots of Painted Trillium on the switchback and stairs sections of Osseo Trail.
Great views on the Osseo Trail from the Downlook and a southern outlook a short ways uphill. Panoramic vistas from both summits.
Missed a celebration of a hiker completing the grid on Mt Liberty.
Many hikers out today including many multi-day Pemi Loopers. Met a hiker I last encountered on Mt Waumbek in January. He and his companions were hiking down Flume Slide Trail.
