Water Crossing Notes: No issues, all streams/brooks low and rock hoppable.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Blowdowns on Airline at 1.6, 1.85, 1.9, 1.92, 2.05 miles. People are eroding herd paths around all except the last one which is a walk-under. Diameters range from 4-10”. One branchy blowdown on VW about 9/10ths below the hut. It has been trimmed a bit but is still blocking the path causing folks to erode a path around it.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Some water available within the first mile on Airline but the streams were very low. Not sure how reliable it will be. If ascending that way you may want to bring water for your dog. VW had plenty of running water here and there.  
Bugs: They are still out and hungry.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: n/a 
Comments: Trails in good condition. VW wetter than Airline. Lot of people up there for a Wednesday!
