|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||Mt. Adams, NH|
||Air Line, Gulfside, Valley Way|
|Date of Hike:
||Thursday, December 26, 2019|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Appalachia Trailhead is plowed for the most part. A bit icy in parts, so take it slow, as always. Don't let a fender bender blow your trip! |
||Dry Trail, Ice - Blue, Snow - Packed Powder/Loose Granular, Snow - Unpacked Powder, Snow/Ice - Frozen Granular, Snow - Drifts |
||Light Traction, Traction |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Trivial throughout. Didn't check out the various falls, but on the main trails, things were fine. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Generally in good shape, though there are a couple blow-downs. Nothing that would require immediate attention. |
||I heard a couple spaniels in the distance, but right now, I'd probably not bring a pup on these trails. They're awfully icy and might lacerate Rover's paws mercilessly. |
|Lost and Found:
||It was a great day to be out. Weather was very unusually warm and clear for the season, parking was plentiful, and the trails were in fine shape. Snow filled in a lot of the gaps between the rocks. |
All that being said, I took a hard fall a bit of the way down Valley Way, so use caution on the trail. I got profoundly lucky, but it didn't have to go my way as well as it did.
Photos and a more detailed write-up on my blog, as always. Cheers!
