|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||Mt. Eisenhower, NH|
||Edmands Path, Eisenhower Loop|
|Date of Hike:
||Tuesday, October 3, 2017|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Dry Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Mud - Minor/Avoidable |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Barely flowing. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Two stepovers (hand sawable) on the first half of the trail. Trail in dire need of stone work to save existing stonework, as well as to mitigate erosion and trail creep. |
|Lost and Found:
||Below treeline, trail was mostly dry with just a little bit of mud near one of the water crossings. Around treeline on the northwest side of the peak, there was a lot of wet/slippery rock, but nowhere else (not in the woods just below that, or above). Odd.|
Beautiful hobblebush leaf colors along the first mile or so of trail. Not much to see in the canopy, and it appears a lot of the trees are going to shades of brown, rather than vivid colors. Looks like a lot of the upper Dry River leaves have already fallen.
Rare mild October night in the Presis for a sunset. Minimal winds and temperatures were warm enough that I didn't need to put on gloves. Not many nights like this left before winter!
