Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The 'bushwhack' to avoid the first two crossings isn't very bushwhacky - it is a fairly well defined path and seems like it would be difficult to get lost on it. On descent I didn't even notice the point where I got back onto the official trail.

There were places to rock hop over the third crossing - no major issues. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A bit muddy in spots on the North Twin Spur but there are enough rocks to avoid getting dirty...or you can just plow through. Otherwise the trails are in good shape. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw five goldies today...all seemed to be having fun. 
Bugs
Bugs: Very annoying when passing back through the North Twin outlook below the summit but otherwise no issues. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a couple of Chap Sticks and an empty bottle of hand sanitizer on the side of the trail on descent. Since I thought it was an odd place to stash odd items I treated these objects as rubbish and packed them out. 
 
Comments
Comments: A glorious day for this hike! Nice to be able to throw the legs into Little River at the end.
