|Date of Hike:
||Friday, June 5, 2020|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||There were only about 5 cars in the Ammonoosuc lot when we got there and when we left |
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable, Snow/Ice - Monorail (Stable) |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||No issues crossing |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Cap's Ridge has a few minor blowdowns with branches poking out that could take out an eye, we broke off most of the dangerous ones. |
||Bugs are fairly bad when there isn't a strong breeze. They mobbed us on Monroe summit as well as most of Gulfside. Not a fun time. |
|Lost and Found:
||Ammonoosuc is looking really nice around now. Most of the snow is gone. There are a few patches of ice-based stable monorail with slushy snow on the surface. It'll take a few more weeks for it to melt, but is bareboot-able up. If you go down Ammo, I would still recommend spikes to avoid slipping in a few spots. Overall greatly improved over the past few weeks. No snow above treeline.|
Crawford Path to Washington has a small snowfield near the hut, but nothing after that. Great dry trail, no issues there.
Mt.Clay loop had a few snow fields that were slippery, but were small.
Jefferson loop and Cap's ridge are in summer conditions: dry and no snow or ice.
