Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment:  
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Only the crossing of the Chocorua River at Weetamoo required any real negotiation. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A lot of the yellow blazes are faded, and it takes a bit of doing to find the path near the summit, but many people just climbed straight up the rocks. Going offtrail at the summit of Chocorua is less difficult than staying on-trail at say the Holt up Cardigan. If you are approaching the summit from the north, turn right at the big ledge; there is a path that goes around and comes back at the summit from the south. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: There is a sign at White Ledge that says all pets must be leashed. 
Bugs
Bugs: A few.

Comments
Comments: There are a few melting snowpacks in places, but nothing worth stopping to put on microspikes. The Carter ledges themselves were as dry as one could wish.
