    Hey, Bear Notch Road is now open! I think that it was closed through May if not into early June last year. Saves lots of time getting from I-93 to Tuckermans.

    I also noticed Hurricane Mt. Rd. in North Conway is also open for anyone who ever uses that.

    Tunnel Brook Road

    Forest Road Status update: Tunnel Brook Road is open, with blowdowns cleared all the way to the end at the Tunnel Brook Trailhead.

    Haystack Road

    My guess is that Haystack Road will not be opening for some time, as the upper part that we walked in the dark last night after our Bonds-Twins traverse was wicked soft, with deep moose post holes in the soft material. The lower part of the road was badly rutted, presumably by USFS vehicles checking on the condition?

    I noticed that the road status website was updated yesterday (scroll all the
    way down and look at the lower left corner for last update) for the first time
    since the mid-December. Another sign of spring...

    Contrary to the WMNF site, Hurricane Mountain Road near North Conway *is* open.

    Yes, and it appears that the link to "Road Status" has changed ever so slightly to the following (the word "/recreation/" was replaced with the word "/conditions/":

    I do believe I see both Gale River Road and Zealand Road labelled as open!

    Zealand Hut lists the road as closed still as of this morning.

    Someone is right and someone is wrong.

    Do note that Jefferson Notch road usually washes out pretty badly on the north end, especially the last 1/2 miel before Cap Ridge Parking, it may be "open" but not very user friendly until the state runs the road grader over the road, which usually occurs during the week going into Memorial Day.

    Is Zealand Rd still gated?
