Date of Hike
Date of Hike: Sunday, September 25, 2016
Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: PNVC was fairly full even at 7:15 AM, but I managed to snag a spot almost right in front of the visitor center. When I got back, cars, as one would expect, were parked on the roadside. 
Surface Conditions
Surface Conditions: Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Mud - Minor/Avoidable, Snow/Ice - Small Patches 
Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Only crossings of note were on Huntington Ravine Trail and Raymond Path- all rock hopped. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails were in great shape. There is an active closure on Tuck's between Huntington Ravine Trail and Raymond Path to replace the bridges. All hiker traffic is now diverted onto the latter two trails. The detourr adds about 0.3 mi and 50 ft. of gain each way. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: On a nice, mild day, this is a good one for dogs, but when it's cold, windy, and icy, like today, use good judgment when bringing along your canine friend(s). Parts of Mt. Washington State Park may also be restricted to dogs (not 100% sure on that). 
Bugs
Bugs: See you next spring, ya pests!
