|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||Mt. Chocorua, NH|
||Brook Trail, Liberty Trail|
|Date of Hike:
||Saturday, July 31, 2021|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||The lot was nearly full at 9am, and there was a bit of overflow along the road in the early afternoon. Most of the dirt roads to the lot are in great shape. The final stretch of road to the lot, maybe half a mile or so, has some rather large pits, so if you're driving a low-clearance vehicle, navigate the dips carefully. It was manageable with low speed and some care. |
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Standing/Running Water on Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||All rock-hoppable. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Not many |
|Lost and Found:
||Brook Trail was wet in places throughout the ascent, but the mud was largely avoidable. The upper slabs/ledges were mostly wet and fairly slick, but there were enough dry patches to make ascending them manageable.|
Probably 25-30 people at the summit at noon, and the descent down Liberty was very gradual. Some mud in places, a bit more than on Brook Trail, but the easier footbed of Liberty made things go quick.
