Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Due to large amount of rain prior, and today, all the water crossings were challenging. Poles were very helpful, and we were rock hopping over very fast moving water 2-3 feet deep. If you don't like risky water crossings, let it dry out. The last Lincoln brook crossing is the most challenging 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: None, slide was in great shape for a slide. The bushwhacks are almost like normal trails..with no maintenance..Brutus is a spiderweb of roots and turns into a slip n slide when wet. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: no dogs on trail 
Bugs
Bugs: Rain kept them away 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: nope 
 
Comments
Comments: Very long hike for a day trip, but doable. We lost a lot of time getting our party of 4 across the water crossings. We also elected to try Brutus down which was very slippery, not bad with poles, but footing would have been better on the slide. There is tons of water in this area at this point, if it starts to warm I suspect an Army of mosquitos is waiting [they started to bug us when the sun finally came out]
