Comments
Comments: Bog Brook Trail to Rainbow Trail - Trail was muddy in places, lots of bogwalks rotting out, etc.

Rainbow Trail to Carter Dome - muddy down low, bogwalks rotting out, but generally good going.

Carter-Moriah Trail, Wildcat Ridge Trail to Wildcat A - mostly dry. Really annoying clouds of bugs when passing the ponds.

Wildcat River Trail - Newer bogwalks down low, but up higher bogwalks are rotting out. We took a right onto FR 233 to avoid the Wildcat River and Brook crossings.
