Comments
Comments: Had been 8 years since hiking from Pinkham side and 12 years since being on Boott Spur. Also had never been all the way up Tuckerman Ravine Tr. only having used it for descents previously. One goal for 2016 was to use this side again and to check out all the trail work done since 2008. Unfortunately the goal was only completed partly. Near the bottom of the headwall on TRT I accidentally followed the lead of some other hikers and ended up off trail. The route we took was a mix of large rock, smaller loose rocks and beaten path through scrub. It came out 100-200 feet to the right of the actual trail and may be a path used during winter/spring conditions. Trails became wet and rather slick from the off and on rain. Wet rocks were more of an issue on Boott Spur as the other trails grades were easier to deal with. Camel Tr. was a treat as it was clear during my crossing over on it and there is an ongoing great view of Washington along trail. Busy trails outside of the headwall adventure and only a few small groups seen going down Boott Spur. Snow fields seen on the headwalls but only a few spots stepped through on Boott Spur. Crystal Cascade was an awesome sight at end of hike. Be back again.
