Comments
Comments: The trails were generally dry and in good condition. There was some running water on the Nineteen Mile Brook Trail especially near the top of the notch but it presented no difficulties. Saw a deer near the Carter Dome and Nineteen Mile Brook junction. Many spots to view the Presidential Range, the Wild River Valley, and Carter Notch. The best views were at Mt Hight but there were also views from a small open ledge area between South and Middle Carter, on a obscure track through the evergreens near the top of Middle Carter, and the viewpoint to the Rampart on a side path off Carter-Moriah on the descent in to the Notch.


Some hikers were unsure of the location of South and Middle Carter summits as there are no signs or USGS plates. There is a small pile of rocks at the top of Middle Carter and a small side path off Carter-Moriah at South Carter. Saw small fish in Carter Pond. Met many hikers on all trails.
