    Nice report, I've been to North Kinsman 4 or 5 times, twice in winter, but have only went to South Kinsman once in winter. That last section up to North Kinsman from the junction with the Mt Kinsman...

    I was there this August too, did the Coe/Brothers loop, and also couldn't believe the condition of that last section up to North Brother. We heard that this section of trail is going to be...

    I finished the NE67 this year...wasn't sure I'd ever finish (or care to!) after finishing the NH48 in 2009, but with some encouragement from my friend Joe (JustJoe), together we got all the remaining...

    I was almost going to say that too - at least if Imp trail isn't broken out or only partially-broken, they'd discover that early in the day when they have more energy, and they can deal with it...

    One thing to consider with loop hikes in the winter is that you're facing unknown (and potentially difficult) conditions on the way out, unless you have very recent trail conditions info, with no...

    I believe the info on Mohammed's site (which has been very valuable to me over the years) is incorrect when it says 1600' to do the out and back from Lincoln Gap. Obviously Tim's GPS info backs this...

    Thanks, good to have this info - I'm doing this hike with Joe. Got my two headlamps as usual and will bring plenty of water. Sounds like the out-and-back is the best option.

    I agree with TJsName...you could ascend Carter Dome trail and hit Carter Dome via Zeta Pass. Then double back and head towards South Carter and Middle Carter. The mileage and elevation gain for...

    I think you're right and it's about 1.2 miles to the summer trailhead.

    As for the herd path along North Twin trail that skips the first two river crossings, I've only been on it in winter as far...

    Nice report Earl. I always hear that the "standard winter route" to Moosilauke is via Glencliff trail. Have you taken this approach in winter, and if so, what is it about the Beaver Brook approach...

    I don't hesitate to hike solo in the late spring, summer, or early fall, although I do prefer company on any hike. When the conditions start to get icy or snowy, if I hike solo I will usually try to...

    My suggestion (and I'm not trying to be sarcastic) is to just avoid extremely steep trails like this in icy conditions. I turned around on my first attempt at East Osceola just due to loose,...
