Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The only major water crossing was on Dicey's Mill, all rocks were submerged but a log over the river made it easily crossable.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails were in good shape overall and good signage. Ledges on Blueberry Ledges trail were dry. Plenty of mud on Rollins and Dicey's, but navigable. Due to recent rain parts of Dicey's Mill trail were small stream beds, I was thankful for waterproof boots.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: One doggo seen, I'd suspect the ledges are difficult for dogs.  
Bugs: Bug were out and biting but not swarming. 
Lost and Found

Comments: This was a great hike that included many different types of terrain - beautiful flat stroll through fields, slow incline walk in the deep woods (old growth forest), stair-master, hills of boulders, rock scrambles, tricky ledges. So much fun. Definitely go UP Blueberry Ledges trail, not down. There are plenty of beautiful views along the trails, so we opted not to do the 0.2 mi view spur off of the wooded Passaconaway summit; plus we were already tired. Up Blueberry Ledges to Whiteface, across Rollins to Passaconaway, down Dicey's Mill was right around 12 mi.
