    Not in it's current form. It's an annual payment, to help in case of an accident. $25.00 a year for walking in the woods insurance. I'll retain the risk myself. I'm also not a fan of buying it...

    There are alternates on the west and east of 16/302. They don't bypass the entire area but most of it. I've found that it's mostly shoppers not hikers and the breakfast crowd that bogs everything...

    I believe to be more precise, North Conway is a zoo. The White Mountain Hostel is close enough to make a quick trip to EMS or Bean but far enough away and on not 16/302 so it doesn't feel that bad. ...
