The Irene-washed-out Wild River Trail
Route: Wild River Trail, Black Angel Trail, Carter-Moriah Trail, (Carter Dome), Carter-Moriah Trail, Black Angel Trail, Wild River Trail
Northern section of Wild River Trail has taken a beating - portions resemble a brook bed, while one or two others may have been taken out by the river (there is a herd path at the top of the embankment). Other than getting over a few blowdowns, it's passable, though slower going than one would hope for what would otherwise be a flat, smooth trail.
Black Angel Trail was mostly dry (with a few minor mud patches that probably grow when wet) with plenty of quasi-annoying blowdowns to step over.
Carter-Moriah Trail to the Dome seems a lot more eroded now than I remember a few years ago (haven't been up there much outside of snow season in recent years).
