|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||Mt. Flume, NH|
||Lincoln Woods Trail, Osseo Trail, Franconia Ridge Trail|
|Date of Hike:
||Sunday, October 25, 2020|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Arrived at Lincoln Woods Trail around 8:15am on Sunday and the lot was only about a quarter full. Forest Services rangers looked like they were ticketing cars that didn’t display a parking pass or pay the fee. Bathrooms were open in the morning, but closed when we left in the afternoon - however, a half dozen or so portapotties were available for use. Lot was only a third full at most in the afternoon when we returned.
||Dry Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable |
|Water Crossing Notes:
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||There were four or five blowdowns on Osseo Trail that you could step over. |
|Lost and Found:
||Found an LLBean jacket on Osseo Trail about 0.1 mile or so below the junction with Franconia Ridge Trail. We turned it into a Forest Service Ranger who said they would be bringing it to the lost and found at the WMNF headquarters. Jacket was frozen and wet, so it was definitely there at least overnight. ||
||Trails were in great shape today. Trail was mostly dry - no traces of snow left from last weekend’s storm. At higher elevations, the leaves were starting to freeze, but at no point did we have a need for spikes. |
