Comments
Comments: Perfect day to hike to Owl's Head; cold, overcast, and rainy. Water crossings were easy. I stuck to the established trails and avoided both bushwhacks. Several people I spoke with that had hiked up the Brutus Bushwhack indicated it was pretty slick.

I took the Lincoln Brook Trail north to 13 Falls after descending the Owl's Head Path. That is a nice section of travel which does not appear to get much traffic. 13 Falls is a solid destination by itself.

Franconia Brook Tr. was a very pleasant walk, and the water crossings were very easy. Only one section of trail was flooded and really muddy (read unavoidable mud) near a small pond.
