    I found the Parapet to be less tedious than the upper part of Buttress, but I did them both on the same dayhike and Parapet was much earlier in the day.

    Rt 113 through Evans Notch is open as of this afternoon. I went up from Rt 2 in Gilead. The Wild River Rd to the campground is still gated, however.

    I'll give a vote to include Eastman in your itinerary. It's quite a nice little peak with views in all directions if you wander around the partially-treed summit area.

    I went up Boot Spur Link and down Tuck's the other day to redline both trails. It was fine, but very slow for me. In future, Tuck's would not be my descent of choice.

    I'm thinking of hiking this tomorrow and haven't seen any recent (post-snow) trip reports. Does anyone have recent information? Is there currently anywhere to park?

    This weekend I decided to redline the southern half of the Albany Mtn Trail. It fits squarely into the "becoming a bushwhack" category.

    I hiked the Stone House and White Cairn Trails on Blueberry Ledge south of Evans Notch last week and the loop was snow-free and spectacular!

    The Roost, north of Evans Notch is also snow-free.
