Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: There was a crossing along the logging road portion of the trail-easily rock hopped. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The Ragged Mountain Trail, at least from New Canada Rd to West Peak, is lightly trodden places and requires care to follow, particularly on the logging road portion. Also, the trail is sparsely blazed in the westbound direction between the sign on the ridge and New Canada Rd. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: No issues this time of year for dogs, but early in the season, your dog (as well as yourself) is likely to pick up ticks. 
Bugs
Bugs: Several flying about, thanks to the recent rain.

Comments
Comments: The Ragged Mountain Trail, cosigned with the Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsage Greenway, was mostly damp with a few dry and muddy spots. One area of major mud shortly before the top of the west peak, but it is avoidable. Some wet rock as well, particularly on the hike back, so watch your footing if you come here under these conditions.

I'd like to come back here from the Proctor Academy trailhead and tag the actual summit of Ragged Mountain in the near future.
