    Caroline Kanaskie added SPB trap loop

    Caroline Kanaskie reviewed Mount Whiteface and Passaconway Loop

    3 months ago

    Long and challenging, but beautiful, hike. Our ascent up Blueberry Ledge was fun, and somewhat quick. 3 hrs from parking lot to Whiteface summit (we stop for breaks, too). There was some more ~technical~ climbing up big boulders, but nothing we (or some dogs) couldn't handle. Socked-in summit at Whiteface, which cleared up as we moved on to Passaconaway. The traverse from Whiteface over to Passaconaway took about 3 hrs, and we elected to explore the view spur, which was a nice treat after no views pretty much all day! Our descent was wicked quick. We covered 4 miles in an hour and a half, a record pace for me and my partner. All in all a great day, 8:45 total time.

    A lovely late winter hike! You can park on York Pond Road with no worries about the gate, as of yet, this late in the year. Our ascent was pretty slow with snowshoes, but coming down was easy. Trail is well packed as of this weekend, snowshoes still required.

    Caroline Kanaskie reviewed Hancock Loop Trail

    9 months ago

    The first 3.5 miles are very friendly, and then you are faced with a decision: ascend North or South Hancock? We chose to ascend South and go down North. The steeps were very slick as butt-sledding activity was at an all-time high. We wore microspikes for the whole hike except for the descent down the North peak--we wore snowshoes. All in all, a great winter hike! 9.1 miles in 8 hours...lots of stopping. From the trailhead to the loop split took us ~2 hours, and same on the return. So trail-math-wise, we spent just as much time doing the summit loop as we did on Hancock Notch Trail/Cedar Brook Trail.

    Caroline Kanaskie reviewed Mount Pierce and Mizpah Hut Loop

    10 months ago

    A wonderful winter hike! Crawford path was a sidewalk, still grateful for the extra traction via microspikes. We enjoyed the Mizpah Hut loop, but most people hiked up and back via Crawford path that day. Took us 5 hours with a good 30-45 minutes of deliberate stopping/snacking.

    Caroline Kanaskie reviewed Carter Notch Hut, Dome, and 19 Mile Brook Trail

    A challenging winter hike! Thankful for microspikes! The ~4 miles from the trailhead to Carter Notch Hut took less than 2 hours, we were moving!! Stopping to snack at a hut in winter is a real treat. The STEEP 1.2 miles up to the summit of Carter Dome were a real workout and required some of the most technical movement I've ever done to date. We descended the same route. We heard that Carter Dome Trail to Mt. Hight/Zeta Pass was icier than Carter Moriah. Anyways we were glad to take a little rest at the hut before starting towards the car via 19 Mile Brook. That ~4 miles took 1:40. Total trip time came to just under 8 hours, 9:30 am to 5:15 pm. Thankful for just enough light!

    Caroline Kanaskie reviewed Mount Waumbek and Mount Starr King Trail

    Perfect for your first winter 4k. Views from Starr King are AMAZING and will give you the courage you need (or maybe, don't need) to continue on the ridge to Waumbek. Take care when parking your car in the winter though, there's a large lot on Rt. 2 just across from the turn for Starr King Road where you can park! Someone got their car stuck on Starr King Rd. when we were hiking. A great place to see the grey jays, btw.

    Amazing winter hike! We used microspikes the whole way, carrying snowshoes. Temps were relatively balmy (read: teens) below treeline. Once we were exposed, we made a quick dash for the summit and returned back to trees ASAP. Winds were estimated at a -20 windchill up there. Absolutely beautiful!

    Nice short winter hike. Snowmobile tracks ran the entire trail. We used microspikes as there was still the need for traction. Saw two snowmobilers, but no other folks out that day.

    Caroline Kanaskie reviewed Mount Anna

    12 months ago

    We followed this route from Jesus Valley Road to Straightback to Anna, and then descended via a logging camp road (marked with blue blazes) and got back to JVR on snowmobile rt 22E. A good amount of snow up there today--no need for microspikes or snowshoes though. On our way from Straightback to Anna, we began following purple blazes on what I think was the Precipice Trail, but we lost sight of blazes after a short while and there were no more tracks (however, there was evidence that we were not the first to dead end on this trail).

    about 1 year ago

    In my journey to complete the NH48, I like to bring friends along who may not be looking to crush the 48, but who still might like to crush a summit beer with me. Tecumseh did not disappoint anyone! Plenty of parking at Waterville, which was a welcome change from some of the USFS parking lots and the like.

    What a beautiful hike! The elevation gain is truly spread out over the assent, so no one part is remembered as heartbreak hill. On a clear September Saturday, the summit was PACKED. If you're looking for a quiet place to rest, I recommend taking the small detour to the South Peak, which is not a 4K summit but is just as beautiful. I really appreciated the respectful quiet there.
