Trail Maintenance Notes: One large walk-around on the lower portion of the Red Trail and one tricky climb-over on the Profile Trail. Otherwise, just a few minor step over blowdowns. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw three very happy but very hot and thirsty looking dogs. Between the two lean-to's there is a decent small stream on both the Red Trail and West Peak Trail. Didn't see much else for a dog to drink. 
Bugs
Bugs: Black flies are out but not bad if one kept moving. None were up in the Fire Tower.

Comments
Comments: Ascending the West Peak and returning on the Red Trail (counterclockwise loop) and ascending the Profile Trail and going down the Summit Trail (counterclockwise loop) is probably the better option for most-going up the steeper, more technical trail.
