Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Nothing of size but one can soak a foot if careless on upper Monroe where water flows on trail for a few short stretches. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Well maintained trails; caretaker out clearing waterbars on upper Monroe; appreciated. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Several out today. Leash rules on summit. If your dogs are like mine and would prefer dirty puddle water to the cool spring water I haul up for them there are water ops throughout. I'd still bring some extra in case. A few spots on Long Tr. where some dogs may need assistance. 
Bugs
Bugs: Did not notice any. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: A black jacket left at Monroe/Dean jct. which I believe was gone on trip down. 
 
Comments
Comments: A real treat hiking this loop with well maintained trails and fairly easy grades. Long Tr. inclusion with your hike gives you some open hiking with numerous view opportunities. Lots of hikers out on a day that started out socked in the clouds but cleared off nicely.
