Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The AT is in fine shape with blazing and footbed. if i remember correctly there may have been two trees to step over on Kodak tr and a couple to limbo under on south cube/cross rivendell. most of the bog bridges that we encountered over the course of the day were breaking up and need to be replace. right now, with the dry conditions it's not an issue because those areas, were barely muddy. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: saw one AT thru hiking pup who seemed to being doing just fine. long stretches between water sources, so bring extra for your canine friends. 
Bugs: a few here and there. some deer flies in the morning. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: found a pretty cool hat tucked in between rocks at the north branch of Jacobs brook that i imagine belonged to a thru hiker. packed it out. 
Comments: a full day of redlining trails on the Moosilauke tab. 1% and then some. saw most thru hikers in the morning on our way up to Smarts. expected to get passed by many thru the day, but we did most of the passing where they were collected filtering water at the south branch of Jacobs brook. Hexacuba was completely empty at 3:30 in the afternoon.
