|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||We arrived at Ravine Lodge at 6:30am and could park right by the fork with the service road. Upon return, there was evidence that cars had parked along the road almost all the way out to NH 118. Yikes. I ran into someone I know who said they parked a mile from the fork. |

|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Gorge Brook Trail continues to see erosion from heavy use. |
||Lots of friendly and well-behaved dogs out today with responsible owners. |
|Lost and Found:
||FOT48: Moosilauke team. Our group had two flags up, one on either side of the summit sign. LOTS of people on top; it was a bit crazy. Looked like Washington up there with crowds lining up for summit sign photos and many impatient people surprised and annoyed that they had to wait. Spoke to a few people who were wandering off onto the alpine vegetation.|
Trails were mostly dry except for Gorge Brook which has some longer stretches of mud and water between the main summit and East Peak, and numerous other small muddy patches.
Not a bad day for this peak -- a mix of clouds and sun with a stiff wind which was perfect for flying the flags. Chilly temps but not too cold yet.
