Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The trails are in great shape although on the upper ledges the yellow blazes are barely visible in places. Made it hard to find the trail. This was a surprise on a higher traveled trail like Piper. The only blowdown I encountered was on Carter Ledge. It appeared to be recent and easily hopped over.

Comments
Comments: Chocorua is a great hike but it packs a punch, especially coming down over Middle Sister and the Carter Ledge. Plan a full day. The colors are starting the change and the views are terrific.
