Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Designated parking area for both trailheads. There is a privy (clean and stocked) at the Mt. Osceola trailhead. Both areas can hold at least 10 cars. I accessed these trailheads using Tripoli Rd from the I93 side. Tripoli Rd is paved then turns to a good gravel road passable by any vehicle. Tripoli Rd is closed and gated in late fall and winter.

Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All water crossings were at low levels and easy to travesrse. 
Trail Maintenance Notes

Comments
Comments: 2 cars in the lot when I pulled up at 2pm at the Tecumseh trailhead. Juxtapose the never ending rocks with the Tecumseh trail. Such a nice, soft walk in the woods on this trail! The rocks encountered were towards the summit and were not as troublesome as those on the Osceola trail. Though the view is not as broad as Osceola, I think the Tecumseh view is superior as you can see Lafayette and the Franconia Ridge along with a multitude of other prominent peaks. There were 2 yellow blazes on this trail. Very faded, but not needed. This trail is simple to follow. Nice signage at the summit if taking a different route down.

Lots of mud and running water on the trails, but what else is expected after a day of rain?
