Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: There are 4 water crossings on this. All were able to be rock hopped. If you have water proof boots then you can walk right through the river with trekking poles and well placed steps. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: There are blow downs as should be expected in the middle of the wilderness. However, everything was easily stepped over, under, or around. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Many dogs on Lincoln Woods. Even found one of my Aussie's relatives (at least in looks). Seriously, mirror image pattern. Wish I had thought to take a picture, but I'm an idiot. Fewer dogs closer to Owls Head, just my two pals. 
Bugs
Bugs: Not too many until it rained a little on the way back. Then the mosquito armies came out in number. A very large number.

Comments
Comments: On Owls Head path we found someone's bug spray and full plastic water bottle stuffed in between two rocks (not dropped, they were clearly stuffed). At least a dozen people went by and left them there, which is surprising. Seriously? Leave no trace, people. Take your trash out. We camped the night so we added this trash to our already full packs. Thank you for that.
