Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Any possible seasonal brooks there are dry during this drought. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails good except for the usual multi-lane herd paths ascending Watatic. Also the huge oak blowdown that I mentioned in my 6-20-16 report on the State Line Trail is still there and has got worse. Whereas in June you could snake through the downed limbs, now more of the tree has collapsed and it is now impossible to go through the limbs and it is now a walkaround. There is no clear herd path yet for this walkaround. Anyway, time for a big saw.
