Date of Hike: Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The single water crossing required us to remove our shoes/socks and wade across (calf deep) 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The blazing is definitely fading and we temporarily lost our way 3-4 times on the boulder sections (only for 1-2 minutes each time). The park should spin through and improve this, but you'll be fine.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Not allowed 
Bugs
Bugs: No black flies, but mosquitoes were out. We used bug spray but still got bit a few times each. Not swarming and not bad at all.

Comments
Comments: Absolutely beautiful day on the Traveler. This was our first time on this loop and I will agree with the guidebooks - it is just as long and hard as Katahdin. The loose rock plus the constant shifts in ups and downs is a real butt kicker. I probably wouldn't do this one again, but it is an awesome hike (perhaps the best hike in New England that has nobody on it). Email me if you have any questions.
