Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: No major water crossings on this route whatsoever. The most significant one is probably the crossing of the outlet of Sawyer Pond, which has plenty of rocks to hop across 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: All trails in excellent shape. The only really notable thing is a giant blowdown on Brunel Trail, just north of where it transitions into a woods road. The blowdown has obstructed the trail entirely and will be very difficult to remove. Mt. Tremont Trail has a spot (about halfway up, before it gets really steep) where a stream running alongside the trail is clogged and is diverting into the trail. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Seems like an excellent route for dogs 
Bugs: Minimal mosquitos and black flies

Comments: While Sawyer River Road is closed, this is an excellent 2-day (or one very long day) loop hike where you won't be bothered by cars driving by (except for a short while on Route 302). I parked at Sawyer River Road, hiked over lovely Mt. Tremont, saw Owls Cliff (views not as impressive) and camped at Sawyer Pond with an easy road walk out on the second day. Brunel Trail is beautiful but the trail corridor is not quite as obvious as the rest of the hike. There is some mud throughout but nothing bad, and no snow whatsoever. Highly recommend!
