|Date of Hike:
||Friday, June 24, 2022|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Arrived at the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trailhead at 8:15am (Friday). No issues parking. Lot was barely a quarter full. This is a few lot ($5) or requires a WMNF parking pass. There are outhouses at the trailhead. |
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||No issues. The ones on Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail were easy to rock hop. The few on Jewell Trail are bridged. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Only ran into one adorable Golden doing the traverse with their owners. |
||Didn’t notice any until we stopped to sit and have lunch on Jewell Trail just before the trail enters the trees, and then the black flies were swarming. But once we were moving again, they were mostly gone. |
|Lost and Found:
||Weather forecast was for trending towards clearing, but unfortunately that didn’t end up being the case. We were socked in the clouds from about 4000 feet all the way to the summit. Some parts of the trails looked like it may have rained the night before, but most rocks were dry. |
We caught a few breaks in the clouds for some views looking into the Great Gulf Wilderness and down the Jewell Trail, but no views from the summit of Washington.
Great chatting with so many hikers today, especially all of those doing the Presi Traverse. Met one AT hiker today.
