    I am hoping that some of the regular readers / locals might report findings in their day-to-day drivings that may not appear in trail condition reports. Or, if you are out hiking and you observe lots on your drive past them, please report them here (or in your trail condition reports.) I, personally, want to climb Mount Nancy in the near future.

    Nancy is usually a wide spot in the road plowed by the state, similar to the Imps lots

    I will be heading to the Mt Tremont trail-head tomorrow. Hopefully finding some place to park. I'll look at all the trail-head parking from Twin Mountain to there on 302.

    Davis Path and Fourth iron were passable on Thursday. Not sure how wide they were plowed or how many cars but some would fit.
    Have fun & be safe

    NH Rt 16 from Jackson to Gorham

    Rocky Branch is plowed

    Wildcat Ridge Trail (AT) normally not plowed but plenty of room just south at "Deadmans Curve" - No overnight

    Pinkham Plowed

    19 Mile Brook Plowed

    Great Gulf Not Plowed

    Camp Dodge road is plowed this year but gated. If it plowed its most likely in use to access Camp Dodge functions at least during the week

    Imp North and South - Wide spot plowed both locations (not recommended overnight)

    Stony Brook - Partially plowed (my view was obscured but it looks like someone ran a plow into it.

    Mahoosuc Trail - Lot under railroad bridge is plowed or use the VIP/Airgas lot

    I did not go down Dolley Copp road to check on Barnes Field. The road is plowed from RT 16 and and I saw the the Dolley Copp contractor turning in the road with a plow truck

    US RT 2

    Appalachia - Plowed

    Lowes - Lowes private parking lot is plowed

    Castle Trail - Not Plowed but there is a plow turn around a few hundred yards west for dayhikers (dont park there overnight or whenever plow operations are possible).

    Rattle River Trail (AT) US Rt 2 not recently plowed, the banking is not high and it looks like some folks have been using it.

    The Kanc:

    Hancocks and Greeley Pond lots are blocked by snow berms caused by the road plows. If you have a vehicle with high clearance, you might be able to get into Lincoln Woods, since it has so many vehicles driving into it that they have kept the berm lowish.
