Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: No issues- Air Line and Valley Way in particular are IMO two of the best built trails in the Whites. 
Dog-Related Notes

Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: The trails were mostly dry, with some minor wet and muddy areas along Air Line near treeline as well as the upper part of Valley Way. No maintenance/damage issues to speak of.

It was unusually cold for early September on the Northern Presidentials, but I welcomed it with open arms. Had my summer fun, but now I'm ready for some winter fun!
