Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: None. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Maybe 5-6 blowdowns along the Osseo Trail (some kind of old, some pretty fresh). All were very passable. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: I saw a couple of dogs that seemed to be having fun. This is a nice hike for dogs. 
Bugs: Generally, the bugs were very manageable. There were a couple spots where they were (briefly) active...the summit of Liberty (Flume was fine) and about halfway down the Osseo Trail. I didn't have bug spray on and they didn't get bad enough to convince me to stop and get the bug spray out of my pack. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Other than some (easily avoidable) muddy sections in the col between Flume and Liberty, this route is in pretty good shape after all of the rain we've had. Only some erosion in some of the steep spots near the summits, but the bulk of the Osseo Trail is perfect.
