Many new rock stairs and new bog bridges in the low muddy spots between Mt Pierce and Mt Eisenhower. There is still a couple of dilapidated bog bridges to the north of the new bridges. The Crawford Path around Mt Monroe is now open. One tree across the Crawford Path between Mizpah Cut-Off and Webster Cliff trail. It is about four to five feet above the ground so it is easy to duck under.

Comments
Comments: Trail below tree line were wet due to Saturday's heavy rain. Plenty of puddles and mud. Usually there were embedded rocks to hop on in these spots. Water running down the trail especially above the Mizpah Cut-Off to the tree line. The water is a surface flow that is an inch or two deep.

Lots of hikers on the trail on Sunday.
