||Dry Trail |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Water levels are very, very low. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||All trail were in great shape. Whomever is maintaining Nancy Pond Trail, especially from Norcross Pond to Carrigain Notch Trail is doing an excellent job. Ditto for Desolation Trail. THANK YOU!
We saw just one waist-high blowdown on NPT at around the 6-mile mark and one stopover on the short 0.8 mile we were on Carrigain Notch Trail. |
||Nancy Pond Trail would be a great choice for those with dogs since there is ample water. We did see fresh moose tracks and very recent beaver activity around Norcross Pond but no actual sightings. |
|Lost and Found:
||This was a lovely approach to Mt. Carrigain. We saw no one for the first 10 miles until the summit Carrigain, then about 20 on Signal Ridge Trail. Nancy Pond Trail from Norcross Pond to Carrigain Notch Trail may be my favorite trail in the Whites. If you've ever hiked it, you will know what I mean. :) The trail maintenance is outstanding and is very much appreciated.|
Desolation Trail was awesome as usual. LOVE that trail......!
