Comments
Comments: Hancock Notch Trail was relatively dry.

Cedar Brook Trail was very muddy along the relo section.

Hancock Loop Trail was its normal mess with lots of unmitigated erosion. Combination of loose small rocks (like walking on ball bearings in places) and larger rocks/collapsing stone staircases.

Temperatures were generally in the 60s under cloudy skies. No rain yet as of early afternoon.
