Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: One water crossing going up passable by rock hopping. One water crossing coming down Dicey's Mill had high water. Passable by walking across a sturdy log if you're careful.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Leaves were at times a foot deep covering roots, rocks and sometimes holes so be cautious. There were areas with hard ice on some of the ledges so pack your spikes, in case. We didn't need them but carried for the option. Some blow down but nothing impassable. It's easy to miss the true summits because they're buried in the trees but there are still great views from the ledges, esp. of Chocorua.

Comments
Comments: Started at 9 and finished before sundown moving at a steady clip with few breaks. 7.5 hours by my Gaia recording. There were three of us so would assume more time with a larger group.
