Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: There were no big streams that you need to cross. But there were very muddy puddles that you would have to cross on slippery logs. You have to be very careful where you step. There are places where moss grows over a wet place. If you step there your foot will get covered in mud. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Who put all the leaves on this trail? Someone needs to rake them off!πŸ˜€πŸ˜‚πŸ˜† 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: We only saw one dog on the trail. It was a very cute dog with black and white markings on it. I recommend the Long Trail for dogs. The herd path is not great for dogs. It was very hard.πŸΆπŸ•πŸ•β€πŸ¦Ί 
Bugs
Bugs: There were no bugs!! I recommend this time of year to go Hiking. There were only small swarms of gnats that did not bite you. They were off the trail. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: We only found a yellow scrunchie. Nothing else. Please do not leave trash on the trail. Thank you!!!😊 
 
Comments
Comments: I hiked the peaks with Summit Seeker And my dad. I was sad that there was no emergency sled at the top of Big Jay. There are no views from the summit of Big Jay. But the climb was nice and there were plenty of spruce trees. I would recommend bringing sunscreen as the sun easily burned us. Sadly there were no animals. But the weather was beautiful!! And please keep your dogs leashed on the herd path. As there is plenty of beautiful moss that should not be trampled. I would recommend getting on top of the mountain before the tram starts. As there are less people on the top. And also beware! It was very muddy and slippery. We tripped a few times but luckily our hiking poles saved us. I would recommend bringing hiking poles. Hats,gloves,and coats are also great to bring too. Please leave the hiking trail just as you found it. Thank you so much!!!!!!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜πŸ˜ŠπŸ™‚
