"The trail was well tamped down, thanks to the previous snowshoers. We also snowshoed the whole way. The deep snow made climbing North Hancock a lot easier. Really bright blue skies, temp was 12 when we started but warmed nicely. Only wind was at the west side of the South Hancock summit. Cool snowman someone made on the summit of North Hancock. Really nice day, great hike." - Alohabuffy, Mar 18, 2018
"Headed out to what I think is my least favorite or at least one of my top 3 least favorite peaks of the 48. Started my official launch for the grid. Despite not loving these mountains, I had great company and it made it actually enjoyable! Well packed trail and everything we lost along the way we found on our return...so quite lucky!" - shay-shay, Mar 18, 2018
"It was a wet and soggy day....not my favorite climb thus far, that is for sure! We had some sprinkles, but mostly were soaked by the trees and falling ice. Our wet day required several changes of clothes until we ran out and just had to suck it up!" - shay-shay, Apr 22, 2017
"Hancock and Hancock loop trail. We started around 8:15 and finished at about 5:10. There were 6 of us out and the other part of the group, 7 came out later. It was a tough hike for a couple of miles, but my last hike being tripyramids, made this one seem easier. It did seem long. There was some snow on the way up, it was light and we kind of enjoyed it. There were a few inches of snow higher up and we did put micro-spikes on then. There were 7 river crossings, some a little tricky but doable. A couple of the guys fell and got a little wet, but no big deal. It rained the last couple miles towar" - lindahowes, Nov 7, 2016
"A socked in cloudy kind of day. Had some concern about the river crossings, but had no issues upon reaching them. Some nasty ice forming on the trail below the summit of Hancock. First peak of the day." - newenglandwarrior, Nov 5, 2016
