|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||Mt. Whiteface, Mt. Passaconaway, Nanamocomuck Peak, Wonalancet Hedgehog, NH|
||Flat Mountain Pond Trail, McCrillis Trail, Rollins Trail, Dicey's Mill Trail, Walden Trail, Old Mast Road|
|Date of Hike:
||Saturday, September 8, 2012|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||When I parked at the Flat Mountain Pond Trailhead off Whiteface Intervale Road in Sandwich, the only other vehicle was a Proctor Academy bus, and it was still there when I returned more than 10 hours later.
Ferncroft had only 2 cars left when I got there around 5:15, but I was told it had been full earlier in the afternoon, and Flags on the 48 probably affected that.
||Wet Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Mud - Minor/Avoidable |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||An easy crossing of the Whtieface River, which seemed low, just before the Flat Mountain Pond Trail joins the McCrillis Trail. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Trails all in decent shape, but the steep, rocky sections of the Walden Trail, in particular, were not suited to such a wet day - my bad. |
||Friendly pooches on the Passaconaway summit, as part of the FOT 48 crew. |
|Lost and Found:
||A great way to participate in Flags on the 48, but the bad weather limited views and made the Walden Trail, in particular, a tiring challenge. |
