    This is an awesome idea...not just the aggregation of the reports, but mapping each one is kind of handy.

    The other item I really like is the overlay of the approximate snow depth. Very good info to have when planning how far I want to go on a trip. The topo looks like it will be helpful for bushwhacking, but I haven't looked at it yet.

    Nice job...and thanks.
    Everyone has a nice quote or something here...all I have is this.

    I agree that this is an excellent new tool. While it's nice to have so many resources to check trail conditions, it's sometimes a pain having to check so many places. Thanks for pulling all of the information together for us in one place.

    Kimball, I don't believe Dave said you were stealing. He said you should discuss this with the site's owner, Darren.
    I too believe the idea is interesting.

    Glad you like it

    Thanks Peakbagr. Excellent reminder, Its so easy to get off track. I'll talk to Darren.

    Glad everyone finds the map based search helpful. Remember, you can zoom way in. As you do the list to posts shrinks to match the area in view. Oh, and you can expand the map by clicking that down arrow, just below the maps edge.

    Next I'm thinking forest service road status would be helpful. You? Seems like every spring I find a gate closed, when I assumed it would be open.

    Oh, Lost hikers, accidents, and rescues might be interesting on the map as well.

    Right, I wasn't implying that you are stealing and I know that spiders are searching and caching our content all over the place.

    I like your site a lot, and I think the community could work together to help alleviate the problem that some people are worried about, namely our trail conditions reports are now spread over several sites.

    Updates Feb-18

    I made a few updates to TrailsNH.com:

    - Worked with Cara at MW OBS to add their Trail Conditions forum.

    - New feature for public (you) to move trip report map markers. It seems a small number of markers are not well placed.

    - Currently working with Diane at New England Hiking Meetup to add her trip report forum.

    For additional Adirondack trail conditions check out ADKforum.com and ADKhighpeaks.com.

    Updates: April 2010

    I made a few updates to TrailsNH.com:

    • Trail Conditions from AlpineZone
    • Trail Conditions from New England Hiking Meetup
    • That brings the feeds for trail conditions up to 8 sites
    • Live regional radar images, from 2 sources
    • Webcams, Photos and Wikipedia


    Reminder: Most (36) of the forest roads are still closed. Road status is scanned and updated every morning and pinned to the TrailsNH map.

    I recommend ADK Forum and ADK High Peaks for Adirondack trip reports.

    Was on the Mt Clinton Road yesterday (not a forest road but a state one). Technically, it's open, but ... have never seen so much winter debris. It took longer to drive around the stuff that it would have to go down to Fabyan and then up the road to the Cog.

    The Jefferson Notch road is still closed.

    NH 4000 trip reports

    Peak Baggers may find this new TrailsNH feature helpful.

    http://trailsnh.com/NH-4000.php

    I added an index containing just the last three trip reports for each peak in the NH 4000 Footer list. There are links to take you to either the trip report or the map. The index is updated once a day, every morning at 5am.
