Date of Hike: 7/20-7/21

Trail Conditions: Very slow going on the side trip to Bald Know due to thousands of delicious blueberries! Slippery Brook was pretty overgrown on the west side of the ridge, Southern portion of the East Branch trail was extremely difficult to follow. Perkins Notch Shelter is pretty unattractive and the outhouse has been dismantled. Royce Tr seems to have received some love recently and was in excellent shape most of the way.


Comments: Left the car around noon Tuesday and spent a beautiful night near the height of land near Perkins Notch. Saw a large doe, a bull moose and a beaver! Good ol' White Mountain hitchhiking: as long as you have a pack on, you can hitch almost 45 miles back to your car in time for dinner!
