    While it may not work 100% of the time, isn't the Pemi the perfect place to abide by the rule of just following the water downhill and out to safety? Everything that flows in there is going to flow...

    Right, there is no Pemigewasset Loop Trail as stated in the article, although there is a Pemigewasset (Pemi) loop route with optional summit variations. And although I am past the point of attempting...

    Yes, very helpful on both counts. Last question if you're still with me; is there a sign or marker for the trail or will I have to guess the spot based on the mileage and your description?

    Thanks Lefty. About what I expected based on what I've read last year. I'm not worried about my vehicle, I'm more concerned with time and speed. It's around 5.5 miles so if you can only drive around...

    Dave, all of your points are well made and logical and I would bet that you are an excellent group leader. If I were an inexperienced hiker, I would want to have a leader like you. But I think...

    Does anyone have a more detailed status update on the condition of Success Pond Rd from Berlin to the Success Trail trailhead? I probably won't get there till August but I'm just wondering how bad it...

    "3 is an ideal party size in bad weather"


    I see your point regarding safety in redundancy but one could also argue that it triples the chances for something to go wrong.

    I appreciate your detailed description of the traverse of the Weeks since that's the one section up there I don't have on my resume. I did the Terrace loop a few years ago and while hardly...

    Two things can be true at the same time. Cars lining the roadside in the notch is definitely not a pretty sight, but this solution is also undeniably ugly. The parking problem seems to be limited to...

    While safety is certainly the #1 priority, this system of posts and ropes and now sandbags is going to seriously impact the aesthetics of the very scenic view one gets driving through the notch.

    I have only ever been on one group hike. It was in Australia over 40 years ago. I was young and fit and reasonably well prepared, but not at the level I would be today. At least I had the right gear,...

    These photos are taken from the south from the general vicinity of Noon Peak. You would expect South Tripyramid to appear slightly higher than Middle because it is closer to the photographer. But it...

    The summit of Guyot on the Bondcliff Trail appears higher than the designated summit on the Twinway. It also looks and feels more like a "summit."
    Most if not all of these examples are probably...

    Great accomplishment! Both the 100 and this particular hike. And to echo iAmKrzys, I loved the very colorful imagery of your report. A long day's journey into night but a very rewarding one.

    Cheaha Mt. in Alabama. The stone tower was a CCC project. I had a photo of underwhelming Woodall, (806 feet)but I can't locate it. It's more of a hill than a mountain. Just a turnaround at a cell...

    I had meant to ask if people here know Pam Bales or know if she ever posts on VFTT. I fear that we have not done justice to her heroic effort on that hike. She has my utmost respect and admiration.

    Thanks to all for the feedback. To clarify for Tom R, I am aware that Kate Matrosova and Ty Gagne's book about her were discussed in detail and at length on VFTT. I'm sure I probably chimed in....

    The Baldface loop, the Percy Peaks, and Crawford/Stairs are probably my favorite 3K hikes in NH thus far.
