|Date of Hike:
||Friday, September 13, 2019|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||There were about 12-15 cars in the Appalachia lot at 6:30 am. Only one had a NH license plate. The most were from ME, second most MA, PA, NJ, MD, VA, RI. None from Canada- pourquoi? |
||Dry Trail |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||The one on Valley Way was easy this day. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||King Ravine Trail and Subway are tough trails! They would have been a bit less so if they were better blazed.
Bushwhacking above treeline isn't much different from following a trail above treeline. Just head for the high point and don't worry about blazes, but try to step on rocks not fragile alpine plants.
||It's easy to see why Subway and King Ravine Trail are not recommended for dogs. |
|Lost and Found:
||I was hoping to hike on Flags day, but the weather forecast and actual weather were much better for Friday. It was that very clear weather after a cold front goes through that makes for optimal hiking. This was a necessity for this particular route, which would be treacherous if wet. It was a long and exhausting day but the views were worth it. |
