"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." - blackwolf_03278, Oct 21, 2018
"Solo. 2/48. With a nasty weather day in the forecast, I opted to go hike something that wouldn’t have afforded me a view anyhow. I started out around 10am after speaking to a woman in the parking lot who was waiting for her daughter to arrive at the trailhead so they could hike together. The trail was mostly dirt, wide, and well-loved and maintained with many water redirects to keep the trail less flooded, and no blow down. Toward the middle & top, there were some rocky areas I watched my footing on as it was wet, wet, wet. It rained the entire time I was out. I had pulled my $18 basic rain ja" - kellieirene, Aug 22, 2018
"A beautiful day for a hike and I felt good. I had heard the views were not great from Hale, and they were not. However, the loop I did over to Zealand Falls provided many good views! Couldn't have been happier." - GSDTheFlea, Jul 19, 2017
"A spur of the moment hike during a rainy weekend. We knew we might get wet, but holy cow... But it was my hiking partner's first rain hike. A right of passage, I think. Also probably the only time we will ever say, "Wait... we're at the top already?"" - gooner, Jun 24, 2017
"This was an attempt for Hale and Zealand for my April Grid. That challenge would be Zealand and the river crossing. I made my way up the Fire Warden's Tr. I didn't encounter snow until I got out of the birch forest. I kept the spikes off and kept going up the snowy/icy trail. The summit had no snow." - newenglandwarrior, Apr 28, 2017
