Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: No major issues. Very wet toward top of Passaconaway due to recent rain. I was thankful to have worn my big waterproof hiking boots so I could walk right through everything without having to worry too much about avoiding it all. Amazing granite step work going down Blueberry Ledge trail. Could definitely use a ladder or two in a couple of spots, you can see holes where there used to be one.

Comments
Comments: Beautiful, exhausting hike. I did it counter clockwise, which I’m thankful for because Passaconaway is a bit ho-hum compared to Whiteface, so I’m glad I saved the best for last. Also, I can’t imagibe hiking UP Blueberry Ledge trail. Gravity was my friend descending those ledges & steep sections. I would not choose this to be my first hike in the Whites or first 4000 footer. Whiteface is VERY challenging!
