Inquiry for NH White Mountain locals. How crowded/bad is it up your way mid-week, at the popular trailheads and at the quieter spots? I've taken my boys (now ages 9 and 11) for at least one overnight backpack every year since they were very young, and these are powerful memories. I've stayed away from the Whites this summer for the obvious reasons and focused on other hobbies, but I'm feeling pretty sad to skip a year with the boys. Everything I read says Stay away, it's bad - the TP/human waste issue has been getting worse every year for the past decade, I can't imaging how bad it is this year. But what about the quieter trailheads? Dry River Wilderness up to southern Presi's? Kinsmans from the south or west? Daniel Webster/Howker? Appreciate any insight. I'm not willing to risk a large number of exposures, even outside, so the popular loops are absolutely off the table, and we'd be camping back country, not at established tentsites. Frankly, pulling way off the trail to let others pass, donning the mask each time - it all seems like more hassle than it's worth, except for the very quietest areas, which probably wouldn't appeal to kids who want adventure and an objective above treeline. So I'm thinking we'll skip this year, but I figured I'd throw the question out there.
