    Ossipee Trails Status Please

    I want to do Shaw by an alternate route instead of from Shannon Pond.

    Anyone know the status of the Mount Shaw trail, Gorilla Trail or Red Trail?

    Thanks.
    Nobody told me there'd be days like these

    I don't know what the latest trail conditions are, but the Mt Shaw Trail does not get closed for mud season if that's what you mean. It has a very small lot.

    Mt. Shaw, Black Snout, Banana, and Tate Mountain Trails were in decent shape a week ago -- a bit of mud here and there and a small amount of monorail near the Mt. Shaw summit area, but otherwise dry.

    The parking area at the Mt. Shaw Trail trailhead can hold about a dozen cars; there's also room on the side of Route 171 for a few more vehicles to park. The private landowner who owns the trailhead area has posted signage indicating that folks can park there, but just to be respectful of the private property.
