"Parked at the Rattle river trail head and road walked the AT over to the start of the hike. Hot, hazy, humid day, but a nice hike. Had ledges to myself and ran into a bunch of thru hikers on way back." - Mount Hayes, blackwolf_03278, Jul 1, 2018
"Hiked Mount Garfield on 6/23. (9 of 48 4000’s complete). 5 miles to summit. Fairly easy trail grading for most of the way up. Miles seemed to fly by. Only the last .2 miles is steep. Views are well worth it. Cold and windy at summit. Beat the rain out too. " - Mount Garfield, dmcosker, Jun 23, 2018
"Another hike to mountain Mist, this time from Rt. 25. Also hiked up to the Webster slide mountain. Also left trail magic at trailhead for AT hikers that passed by as I was out there hiking!" - Mount Mist, blackwolf_03278, Jun 21, 2018
"We camped out at Lafayette place and received 3" of rain that night. The next morning we went up Old Bridal path to the summit of Lafayette and continued on the Franconia ridge to Lincoln and Little Haystack then down Falling Waters trail to get back to the campground. The trails were wet and the water crossings tricky due to the rains the night before. The summits were in the clouds while we made our way up to Lafayette but cleared by the time we reached the summits." - Mount Lafayette, k2rider123, Jun 19, 2018
"What a awesome day! Hiked up the Webster Cliff trail to Mount Webster. The views from the Cliff trail were awesome, feels like a high peak ridge walk! Then hiked over to Mount Jackson and enjoyed views of Mount Washington and the rest of the range," - Mount Jackson, blackwolf_03278, Jun 10, 2018
