Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: We had one of the last parking spots in the lot circa 7:15. Upon returning today, vehicles were parked almost the length of the field (yes, not only the access road length, but the main road length). Most I've ever seen here. Majority were out of state plates.

Comments
Comments: Tom Wiggin Trail was damp in a few places with some slippery ledge, but otherwise was fairly decent going. Footing is not too bad on ascent for White Mountain standards.

Blueberry Ledge Trail scrambles were fairly dry.

Rollins Trail had some muck after the summit of Whiteface, but otherwise was fairly dry. A few very tiny patches of snow remain, but are barely noticeable and probably won't make it too far into the work week. Microspikes are superfluous at this point unless you want to propagate the sound of jingle bells.

Upper Dicey's Mill Trail had running water on it, as well as some muck. Below Rollins was mostly dry.

Temperatures were a little more seasonable today with partly sunny skies and plenty of breezes. Still plenty of wildflowers in bloom including bluebead lily, lady slipper, bunchberry, trillium (up high), and star flower.
