Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: No issues. The main crossing, and the three or so smaller ones, were not snow- or ice-bridged, but were easy rock hops. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Signage seemed okay. Trodden path was so obvious that I barely noticed the A.T. white blazes. No blowdowns that I recall. Brushing seemed okay. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw two dogs on the trail today, one who seemed to be collecting firewood. 
Bugs: None noted 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: One hiker reported some lost car keys. 
Comments: Route was in good microspiking condition. There were just a few spots of exposed ice here and there, none extensive, all easily negotiated. There was a little bit (less than an inch) of new snow on the well-packed trail; that new snow is now well-packed with about 15 other hikers on this route today. (At least two hikers - maybe some others - also hiked over to Mount Flume.) There were a few slightly bony spots, but nothing too bad. The boniest was the last 100 or 200 yards to the summit, with light new snow over the rocks.
