Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Middle Sister trail could use a bit of brushing for the .25 miles below the intersection with the Carter Ledge Trail; Very eroded section of rotten granite and sand just below the first ledge on the Carter Ledge Trail- steps or well placed rocks would be helpful. Otherwise all trails beautifully maintained and marked!

Comments: What a perfect weather day for this hike where the views abound. Took the path less traveled with the Middle Sister Trail up. What a fantastic little trail this is and is very easy until the ledge outlook above the Mt. Blue col. Ton of moose poo on the trail but no moose spotted. A bonanza of blueberries currently on this trail as well. The only water on all of these trails was just below the col on this trail so make sure to pack it in. We did not see anyone until the intersection with the Piper Trail & the summit had about 10 people on it at noon. Thanks to the trail maintainers that were working just below the summit of Chocorua today! Coming down the Carter Ledge Trail was fun with views from multiple spots. Full trail report in IG link.
