Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Due to low water levels the crossings of Whitewall Brook on Twinway were hardly even there and all 3 crossings of Little River on North Twin Tr. were relatively easy today. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: All trails in nice shape and very dry. Watch for one of the log bridges on Lend-a-Hand Tr. as a piece is hollow between the two boards causing potential ankle roll while gazing around for moose.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Can't recall any water between Zealand Hut area and 1/2 way down North Twin Tr.. 
Bugs
Bugs: Flies swarming on Hale and South Twin; probably elsewhere if stopping longer. Not bad in the woods.

Comments
Comments: May want pant legs on Fire Warden's Tr. as berry bushes left there marks in a few spots. Did this loop with Twins at the end for lesser crowds and it worked out well. Great day with excellent views From Zeacliff, Guyot, Twins and all other view points. Underestimated water needs.
