    Monadnock 1/16

    Conditions were beautiful for a hike up the White Arrow Trail. Traction was pretty essential for any area that wasn't exposed to wind and sun, but once above tree line I was able to bare boot on rock to the summit

    New AMC Hut in Crawford Notch???

    The concern mentioned by the AMC about splitting up the 14 miles between Zealand and Mizpah has already been addressed by the AMC Highland Center. Its not a hut, but it was conveniently not mentioned.

    New AMC Hut in Crawford Notch???

    This is on land owned by the people of the State of New Hampshire. I have always bristled at the fact that Lonesome Lake Fee's are more for a NH resident (NH member) than for an AMC member from Massachusetts even though it is supposed to be a collaborative deal. I am not a "hut person" or an...

    Thoreau Falls Bridge Removal?

    I'm guessing that with it being a hot day most of the parked cars were swimmers going to Franconia Falls and not hikers. I've had some exciting stream crossings myself. I've found this website helpful in guessing what stream crossings may look like...

    The Weeks over Waumbek (9 peaks - sort of)

    Wow this is like a matching description of my account of when I did this same hike out and back a few years ago, water issues and all. I found similar conditions after Waumbek, even a dead Moose on the side of the trail. I had burned through my 2 bottles on the way back and was eager to get to...

    Poop in the campsite: a tragedy in four acts

    This was taken this past winter. Sorry to get graphic, but yes that brown spot in the snow in front of Kinsman Pond Shelter is Human Poop and TP. I could not believe that someone who had enough appreciation for the shelter to hike there in the winter would at the same time have so little...

    Boots vs Trail Runners

    I burn through trail runners training on my local hill several times a week and I'm too poor to go with La Sportivas or the like.. New Balance for me too. I loved the 476 but they stopped making it, The 481 is close but the sole doesn't seem to grip as well on rock, I think the rubber may be a...

    Monadnock Main Trails Continuous Hike -Planning

    I'm using the state park's official map's definition of "Main Trails" According to there map Cliff walk is a "foot path" but I agree it seems like it should be considered a main trail and I think its a good idea to add it instead of back tracking. Thanks. I think it will be easier and more...

    Monadnock Main Trails Continuous Hike -Planning

    I hike Monadnock quite a bit and have now redlined all of the trails on the current official map plus most of the abandoned trails that were on a very old map that a park employee shared with me, after I took an oath not to blog about them :). Looking for a new Monadnock challenge, I would like...
