Water Crossing Notes: water crossings were all ok. the large brook on passaconaway cut-off necessitated stepping in water which in my experience isn't unusual.

Comments: mostly dry trail except for the standard short bits of mud and wet trail. some wet ledge in spots.

beavers have flooded the trail for a short stretch near the dam on oliverian brook trail.

i like carrying a water filter for this hike to top off along the way (the small brook below passaconaway being a favored spot).

such a great day to be out hiking. cool temps and nice views. very quiet up there today. one of my favorite loop hikes.
