Comments
Comments: This was a great two day trip over the Carters. Started at north end in Gorham and hiked south to Imp shelter for the night (plenty of room when we arrived). Then continued south over the Carters and out to 19 Mile Brook trailhead. We altered plans and opted not to grab the Dome on this trip due to collective feeling of the group and time of day when we arrived at trail junction. Trails were in good shape overall. There are sections of mud (some pretty deep) but they are intermittent and manageable. Had great views of the Presi's both days starting with the ledges of Mt. Surprise and continuing across the ridge. Views into the Wild River Wilderness were also excellent. This was a great weekend hike.
