    Update on Caribou Valley Road

    Driving the road October 9 & 10, I discovered several pieces of heavy equipment (bulldozers, etc.) along the road. There are a number of areas where fresh dirt has been spread and smoothed. It looks like some culverts have been repaired or replaced. I'm not sure if this means there will be more...

    Caribou Mountain via Caribou and Mud Brook Trails

    Date of Hike: September 26, 2014 Trail Conditions: Scattered blowdowns here and there, several of which appeared very recent, but none were major obstacles.

    Owls Head higher summit

    On my recent hike up Owl's Head in June, I GPSed the summit cairn at N 44 08.6619 W 71 36.2942. Here's a picture of the summit cairn with the unusual birch tree I believe Tim is referring to beyond it. I wandered off further north and found the mountain to clearly be sloping downhill, which...

    Date: February 17, 2014 Trail Conditions: I ascended and descended the Old Speck Trail. It had a well packed snowshoe track about 3/4 of the way up.

    Peak Above the Nubble 11/9/2013

    I never clearly identified the logging road mentioned in other reports. Instead, I headed off 304A at the site of a concrete culvert just a minute or two up from the sand hill. Walking through beautiful open woods up the drainage, I soon came to the south side of the overgrown clearcut...

    Date of Hike: September 3, 2013 Trail Conditions: A little wet & muddy in places, but no major issues. There are lots of roots and rocks making up the footbed of the AT, particularly as it climbs South Crocker, so the going was a little slippery and slow at times. Special Equipment Required...
