|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Busy but still some room |
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Standing/Running Water on Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable, Mud - Significant |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||All crossings are rock hopable. The upper portion of north carter trail has running water going down, and my boots got a little damp |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Work has been done to clear some blowdowns. Some trees still lay across the trail but you can climb over and crawl under. A few have obvious paths to get around. Some areas of carter dome trail and north carter trail are very narrow and grown in.
Some big boards on the AT will need to be replaced soonish, but they served their purpose today. |
||Saw one happy, well behaved leashed doggo |
||A constant presence. Mosquito, big flies, little flies, and plants of spider webs too. I think the bugs enjoyed the view |
|Lost and Found:
||Nothing to mention ||
||19mb trail is in good shape, but very wet. Carter dome trail gets narrow in places; it made me second guess if I was going the right way. AT was well marked, had some good views, and some rocky and Boggs terrain; very fun! North carter trail has running water going down at the top half, and gets very narrow in places. Imp trail (I took the side avoiding imp face) has lots of rocks and roots that could roll an ankle if you’re not paying attention. Last mile or so of the trail is very runnable if you’re so inclined. All in all a great day in the whites for 34,35/48! |
Saw many families and solo hikers today, more than I would have expected for a Thursday.
