"Another Grid peak for me and helped out Marielle for her NH48W. Doug also went up to grab Galehead and the Twins. Denise and Briana also joined us. The trail was broken out. We used spikes the whole way up. Low cloud cover today. " - newenglandwarrior, Mar 11, 2018
"After Garfield, our Meetup group we went over to Galehead Mtn. We took the steep part off of Garfield slowly and had no issues. After Galehead, we went down Galehead River Tr. This was a Grid peak gain." - newenglandwarrior, Dec 2, 2017
"After Garfield, I followed Garfield Ridge Tr and hiked up Galehead. I then went down the trail to 13 Falls Tentsite, grabbed my gear, and made the long flat hike back to the Lincoln Woods parking lot. Did it in under 3.5 hours. An awesome couple of days." - newenglandwarrior, Sep 22, 2017
"Great weekend in the White mountains! Hit North Twin and South Twin, and made our way to Galehead. Galehead was my friends #48 to finish the NH 4000 footers. From there we hiked to Garfield campsite, next morning hiked to Garfield summit and down and out The Gailriver tail" - blackwolf_03278, Jul 29, 2017
"We quickly came down South Twin, breaking trail in the powder along the way. We reached the hut, left our packs there, and made our way to the summit. On the way back down, we bumped into a group of 4 that was following our tracks. One of them was Shay Shay. They were doing the same route we were. We continued on down the Gale River Tr and to the road. We attempted to follow the xc ski trails but ended up losing them and road walking back to my car. A great and tiring day.
