Comments
Comments: A nice late morning hike of the Moose. Trace amounts of snow at lower elevations up to approximately 8" at upper elevations with heavy drifts just below the summit. Great views at outlook points and extremely low visibility and windy at the summit. i crossed paths with 4 others on this hike. it was a real treat to see a snowshoe hare chomping on some lunch today. i tried to get a picture but was too slow.. it was nice taking Puts Path for the first time. the new trail is still quite soft but offers a slightly different way back to the parking lot that parallels the Ravine Lodge Road. .8 miles in length there is a nice plaque in memory of Put Blodgett. this path is directly across from angled parking and comes out at the summer parking area. This summit is number 38 of 46 needed for November. Shoulder season can be a tough one for sure.
