Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Several water crossings on Wilderness Trail, water was super low so they were pretty easy! However the last time I did this trail it was peril so just be careful if you do this after a lot of rain. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Shockingly good condition today for the amount of obscure trails we did. All the new trail signs spoke to some recent trail work. Nothing but a couple of super easy blowdowns along the way. Most annoying part of the day were the mud ponds on the side of Cedar closest to Hancock Notch. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: None seen. All probably would've been fine minus the herd path. 
Bugs: Bugs were kind of annoying on the West Side of Nancy Pond Trail and middle of Wilderness. Otherwise not so bad.

Comments: ***Really detailed trail report linked below***
This would be a great loop for a beginner/moderate backpacker to make for two 10 mile days if you stealth camp just before Stillwater!
