Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Bypassed first two crossings on North Twin Trail, at the third crossing I went upstream a hundred feet and rock hopped across on submerged rocks ankle deep, current was not strong as my GoldenDoofus had no issue, so you can wade if need be. A few hundred feet furthur upstream there is a downed tree about eight feet above the water you can shimmy across too. All other crossings easily rock hopped

Comments: Quiet morning on the trails for Sarge and I. Some sweet views in all directions.

Bare ground, mud, and ice to the turnoff for the Fire Wardens Trail, snow and ice becomes more consistent as you get to the third crossing, from the river up and over N & S Twin and Galehead all the way down to the final two miles of the Gale River Trail microspikes were perfect over packed trails. Last two miles of Gale River Trail is muddy with standing water, I bushwhacked through easy open woods to the forest service road, followed that until buswhacking again through open woods to Haystack Road before eventually making my way back to Seven Dwarfs to make a nice little loop.
