"Nice short hike up Hale Brook trail. Trail was muddy and leave cover down low. Icy spots and frozen mud near summit. Frost covered trees nest top and snow falling most of way." - Mount Hale, blackwolf_03278, Oct 21, 2018
"Out-and-back from the Berlin Fish Hatchery. Evidence of major blow-down destruction on South Weeks. Huge shout out to the trail crews that cleaned it all up. Water crossings on the York Pond Trail were a little trickier than I would have preferred." - Mount Weeks, ducati996, Oct 6, 2018

"My 30th NH 4,000-footer the week of my 30th birthday! I had performed in a chamber music concert in CT Friday night, and was running on a maximum of 4 hours of sleep when I met Jessica at 4:40am Saturday. We took our standard 3+ hour drive to our mountain of choice, all the while bemoaning our mutual exhaustion and agreeing we had probably made a terrible decision, but were doing it anyway. The clouds rested below the mountains that morning, and the vibrant autumn colors assured us the trip ahead would be worth it. It was! 39 degrees to start. Varied and pleasant terrain. Two new trail friends" - Owl's Head Mountain, gooner, Oct 6, 2018
"It was a nice ride with beautiful colours in the trees. There were volunteers at the summit. The fire tower view is great and without it, the wooden summit would have no view. The trail was muddy, I do not know if this is the usual condition or the consequence of yesterday's rain." - Stratton Mountain, pierredenommee, Oct 5, 2018
