|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||Mt. Flume, NH|
||Lincoln Woods Trail, Osseo Trail, Franconia Ridge Trail|
|Date of Hike:
||Sunday, July 17, 2016|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Found a space at Lincoln Woods around 10:30, but a lot of cars were parked along Route 112. |
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Standing/Running Water on Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||None of significance. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||One or two stepovers remain on the Osseo Trail. Members of our group removed a couple on the Osseo Trail as well as one on Lincoln Woods Trail.
The Osseo Trail is rapidly falling apart. The vast majority of the stone staircases are either failing or have failed. Lots of sections have unmitigated water flow due to no drainage. It's staggering to see how this once-relatively-smooth footbed is deteriorating. |
||Occasional deer flies, but otherwise not too bad. |
|Lost and Found:
||Lincoln Woods Trail had some dry and muddy stretches from recent rainfall. Osseo was generally damp with areas of mud and running water, as well as slippery rocks. The short section of the Franconia Ridge Trail was also damp.|
Congratulations to SilverFox on his total-knee-replacement-grid-finish.
