Comments
Comments: Looks like Even notch is getting popular, plan A was to hike Eastman but the baldface circle lot was full with cars lining Rte 113 for several hundred yards each way - easily 50+ cars there today! Opted to head a little further up Rte 113 and hike speckled which was a great choice - met a dozen other hikers all day. Took the loop Blueberry Ridge up and Bickford brook down. Trails all in great shape with perfect hiking weather and great views from the ledges along blueberry ledge and from the speckled summit. Always a great hike.
