Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: The small one towards the beginning of Whiteface Mtn Trail was a very short rock hop. Should be easy if you’re confident in your abilities. It was pretty “full” of fast moving water though. Luckily not all the rocks were submerged. There’s another very small and easy stream to cross on Vista Trail  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The trails are all well marked and mainatained. The sign showing trail jcts at the summit of North Piper needs replaced. The Mount Sweet Trail that continues onto Sweet from the end of Vista Trail appears to be blazed in yellow not green like the guidebook suggests. A few blowdowns and duck unders but nothing too bad.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Didn’t see any but I think they’d be fine  
Bugs
Bugs: Saw a tick on me in the car ride home...  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Found a hat not far from the summit of Whiteface that I threw away. There’s a bit of litter on these trails unfortunately.  
 
Comments
Comments: Started off at 49F and cloudy but got warm and sunny towards the end. Really glad my father and I got out there today! The mud wasn’t too bad and was mostly avoidable. It was worst on the upper section of Mt Whiteface Trail.
