Water Crossing Notes: The crossing on the herd path/abandoned trail was rock hoppable with a leap of faith and a wet rock or two. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Two stepovers - one on the first relo and the second just before the second relo. Lots of unmitigated erosion and trail creep - multiple rock staircases and waterbars are failing, and trail creep is taking out entire trees. Noted a decent amount of flagging tape on the lower trail.

Comments
Comments: Trails were still fairly wet today, though not as bad as I was expecting. Plenty of minor to moderate mud, as well as areas of running water. The lower elevation flats were generally good going, however the higher elevation rocks and roots were slick. Light rain around 3:30 to 4 PM made things a little more slippery.

Other than the rain, a decent day (and a very nice day for July 2021 standards). Lots of folks out hiking today (particularly in Crawford Notch).
