Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The tributaries up to the third crossing on the N. Twin trail were running high but easily crossed. None of the crossings including the third crossing could be rock hopped. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The trail up to the third crossing in good shape except for a tree that is down about 500' from the trailhead. It necessitates a whack around it. The Fire whack is in pretty good shape. The Fire Warden's trail up Hale is in surprisingly good condition especially for a trail that is not maintained. The trail is unmarked and the point of departure can be difficult to find if you've never done it, but once on the trail it is easy to follow. The trail begins on the North Twin trail on the "whack" between the first and second crossing somewhat closer to the second crossing. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Plenty of water on the trails today for hydration. larger dogs should be able to get across the rive alright. I would suggest keeping a smaller dog on a leash. The current was quite strong.  
Bugs: None 
Lost and Found

Comments: It was impossible to rock hop the river today. Since I had not brought my water shoes with me we aborted the original plan to do the Twins and Galehead and did Hale via Fire Warden's trail instead.
