Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Big crossing of Bog Brook (3rd one on the way in) was the trickiest of the day, however could be managed with careful foot placement. All other crossings (I think 9 total?) were pretty straightforward. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Bog bridges on Bog Brook Trail could use some love. There were some that were in pretty rough shape. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: All the ones we saw were happy! 
Bugs: N/A 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: N/A 
Comments: Absolutely glorious loop on Carter Dome. Trails were super mellow except for one push on Rainbow to the top of Rainbow Ridge.

Saw not a single person on Bog Brook, Rainbow, or Wildcat River.

This loop in peak foliage is just perfection.
