|Date of Hike:
||Thursday, October 17, 2013|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Plenty of parking at Crawford Depot. |
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Crossings of Crawford Brook were easy on rocks |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Trails in good condition. Willey Range trail through large blowdown areas were cleared by ax. Some leaners may pose problems during the winter depending on snow depth but will most likely be walk arounds. A short section of the spur to the Mt Tom outlook over Crawford Notch requires trimming of evergreen boughs. |
||Fine for dogs. Saw none today. |
|Lost and Found:
||The day started out with low clouds. As the day progressed the clouds lifted off all peaks except Mt Washington.|
The top of Mt Tom was marked by a cairn with a spoon.
Fed two gray jays on the summit of Mt Field.
Saw a group of kids going to Mt Willard at the outset of the hike. Otherwise I saw only two other hikers.
On descent I opted to walk the loop trail to Pearl and Beecher cascades. Not much effort to view two nice falls.
