Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: There are several crossings, perhaps seven. All can be managed with dry feet with a little route planning over the rocks. There is one section after all the beaver ponds where a stream comes in from the woods at all angles. Water,water everywhere! I crossed with mud hopping and a downed pine tree. There is a cairn in the path on the other side of this indicating that yes this indeed still the trail. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Thank you to the trail maintainer as this trail is fantastic. The fresh yellow blazes in those areas of reroute and possible confusion were most helpful. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes:  
Bugs: It's May = blackflies but not bad. Did not even put on the bug net. A slight breeze kept them from their feeding frenzy. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Nothing lost, nothing found. 
Comments: What a beautiful trail and easy to follow. Only saw one other pair of hikers today and they had camped out. The mud ponds were such a treat with several beaver dams. No wildlife seen today. At the end of the Tunnel Brook trail at 4.4 miles there follows a log road walk to the Benton trail junction and then more road walk. It was in the 80's and hot in the sun without leaf coverage. The log road past the Benton junction has had improvements since we were there last year.The large exposed culvert is repaired.
