    Sammy A reviewed Mount Whiteface and Mount Passaconaway Loop Trail

    8 months ago

    I did not do the loop in this map, we went up the Blueberry Ledge Trail across the Rollins Trail and Down the Dicey Mill Trail.
    It is a difficult trail but manageable if that makes sense. There is rock scrambling as you approach Whiteface but we were fortunate to have dry rocks, I would imagine it being difficult if it was wet or icy.
    The weather in the morning was slightly muggy for 50degrees, when we got to the rock scrambles it was starting to get windy which was refreshing and the sun was poking out through all the clouds. We got some amazing views. As we started to head to Passaconaway the wind was bringing more cloud coverage and we were in the clouds for that summit which is fine as we got the great views at Whiteface. As we started to head down we had a mini overlook where you could see the cloud line and the foliage below. It did start to rain as we made our way down Dicey Mill but because that section is predominately covered we weren't getting too wet. We did bust out our rain jackets and bag covers right before the end of the trail as it started to get heavier.

    I would hike this again but probably only do Whiteface as there was more to see especially after the 1st rock scramble.

    Parking was fine when we got there but when we walked back to our car it was VERY packed. Glad we start early.

    As we drove out their were 2 moose in an open field (male and female) so we had that opportunity to hang out for a second and admire their beauty.

    What a crazy hike! Very steep and made interesting with the steep rock slabs which fortunately were dry. The whole trail was dry, no creek etc. There were a few mud spots towards the top but no issues crossing. The summit peak is small and did start to get over crowded as everyone wanted to eat their lunch. But I got my pictures and snacks in before heading back. There is a random car at the beginning of the trail. Another really hot and humid day with minimal to zero breeze.

    Parking disclaimer - We were the 1st ones that pulled up to the trail head which is in a neighborhood. Sign clearly states no parking but no other sign to say "park here" so we ended up parking on Mill street and crossed the suspension bridge. When we left we saw a bunch of people had chosen to park in grass area near a few houses and then along the road near the suspension bridge. It would have been nice to see a sign "hikers park here" etc. I was nervous to get towed by angry homeowner so I went with the parking lot near the soccer park.

    Fairly average hike. It was very warm and humid. Great view at Bunnell Rock which makes up for the lack of views at the summit. I didn't make the loop over the Bulge and Horn. The 1st mile is level but overgrown, I collected quite a few things walking through (slugs etc) got them off and put them back. Cabin was neat stopped on the way up and the way back.

    Very Steep hike. Unusually warm and humid this past weekend. The hike is manageable but felt way more draining after hiking 5 other mountains the previous days. Nice old well at the beginning of the hike. We did see a lot of moose tracks towards the top of the mountain but didn't see any moose.

    Entering fair warning - the road is gravel and there are pockets where if you have a small car you could find yourself stuck.

    Tackled these 2 peaks. Not a terrible hike, it is deceiving as most of it is fairly easy and then you hit the loops for the 2 peaks and it gets really rough. Very accurate on Hiking North 1st and coming down South. It was very muddy and a lot of standing water on the trails. Made for interesting maneuvers especially over all the roots and loose rocks. I will say I was surprised and disappointed there was no actual Summit markings. Bunch of signs telling you what trail you were on and distances but no actual "Mount Hancock" or even a rock cairn. Weather wise was quite a mix, rain in the am then fog then crazy winds and ended with sunny and 76 degrees. Welcome the mash between summer and fall.

    Sammy A reviewed Cannon Mountain via Kinsmann Ridge Trail

    Solar Eclipse Edition - Knowing this summit had an observation tower we decided to cross Cannon Mountain off the list. We knew it would be busy but we were not expecting it to be pandemonium. This hike in general was out of sorts for us and took us longer as we were trying to kill time to watch the solar eclipse. The trail is well maintained but as everyone else stated it is very steep! General rule of thumb if the trail is right off the highway and it is a "short distance" it is very likely it will be very steep. It is difficult and demanding on your body, but you are greeted with quite the views throughout the hike. It is a bit annoying that you can hear the highway the entire time but it is literally right off I93, so it is unavoidable. It does get dull closer to the summit. The other downfall is the tramway is ran year round so when you get close to the summit and at the summit there is a decent amount of tourists especially in the afternoon. There is a little side trail when you hit the main switchback that lets you see Mount Lafayette and Lincoln and it has great views. You can even see the observation tower. There is no actual summit marking, sign, rock cairn etc which is odd considering the tourist area. Either way decent hike but be prepared for very steep on the way up and the way down.

    Sammy A reviewed Gorge Brook Trail to Mount Moosilauke

    11 months ago

    This was a great loop! I definitely see myself doing this trail again. Very well maintained, in fact we saw volunteers working on Carriage Trail. The waterfalls on Gorge Brook Trail were beautiful. The progression to the summit was very gradual considering it was 3.4 miles from the trailhead. Views from Moosilauke were amazing, it was my 1st hike above treeline and a 360 view at the summit and it did not disappoint! It was mildly cloudy but still had a great view I can only imagine on a completely clear day. The walk to the south peak was nice, lots of rocks. The south summit was equally impressive and worth the little jot off trail. Carriage trail to Snapper Trail was riddled with loose rock but a decent descent.

    As a previous reviewer mentioned there is a lot of construction going on and the lot before the closed road is limited. Getting there at a decent time is crucial if you don't want to add 2 extra miles before starting the hike. We got there just before 6am and lucked out. But when we left around 12:30pm there was what looked like a never ending line of cars parked on the side of Ravine Road, it was intimidating and made me happy I started early! It took us just under 3hrs to get to the summit (based off the actual trail head not the added walk from parking to the trail head)

    Crossed another 48 off the list. I knew this was a wooded summit ahead of time so I was prepared for "disappointment". I will say I underestimated this trail when I saw how short it was. It begins the steady incline pretty quickly and while it is gradual it doesn't let up too much. I will say despite not having a great view at the top the trail itself is beautiful and feels very much like a rainforest and you can almost hear the brook throughout the entire hike. It is a very wet trail and footing can be questionable as a lot of the rocks are rather smooth and the tree roots aren't any better. The way up was easy the way down required extra caution because of the slippery areas. You know you are close to the summit when the trail narrows significantly and it almost feels like you are bushwacking. Around these narrow spots if you look to your left or slightly behind you can see some mountains through the trees. The summit has a very large clearing with a massive rock cairn which is impressive and made up for the lack of an outlook. It was very warm when we hiked this and no breeze so we snapped our picture and started to head back. Bug Spray, don't forget it or this will definitely be a horrible experience.

    We started at 6am on 7.16.17 we got to the summit at 7:49am (White Mountain Guide book states 2 hrs 15min) we were back to our car at just before 10am. We had a decent pace and still stopped to take pictures and video

    We did come across frogs and a lot of slugs which are typically a bright orange and easily avoidable so be sure to watch your step to not kill any of these ☺

    Side note, I bring small trash bags with me to pack my trash out and along the way I pick up trash I see. While you don't have to it is a nice thing to do to keep these trails clean and beautiful.
