Water Crossing Notes

Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Some bits of the Attitash trail could use a cleaning-mostly small debris, and blowdowns that can be easily walked around. Mostly good footing except for a nasty area that was steep and gravelly. Fellow 52-WAV hikers pointed out how to reach the summit, which involves taking a narrow herd-path. To find it, continue past the ledges on the Attitash trail, then you will see an obvious herd path just before the trail descends. It's easy to follow, but it's kind of grown in spots and has a slippery steep section. You'll know when you've reached the summit-small clearing that had a small "X" made of wooden sticks.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Only saw a pair of friendly dogs today. 
Bugs
Bugs: Plenty. They were more annoying than vicious however.

Comments
Comments: Generally I don't like hiking on hot days, but was able to squeeze in another 52-WAV peak before the afternoon storms. It's a mostly easy (and pleasantly scenic) hike, but the heat made things more difficult for me than they should have. Met a bunch of other 52-WAV hikers who were excited to check off this newly added peak-expect this hike to be more popular from now on. Hazy but fine views from the ledges, and make sure to find the summit if peak bagging!
