"Great day for a hike for four great friends. The weather was clear and cool, with bright sun and a gentle breeze. Who could ask for anything more. We parked at the parking lot at the gate (as the road up to Mt. Battie wasn't open). We paid our $2 each park entry fee and we were off like a heard of turtles. We started out on the Nature trail, up to the Ocean Lookout. Then we took the Tablelands Trail to the tree top summit. From they we went down the Slope Trail. No one had been down the Slope trail and we had to break trail the whole way to the ski shelter. Luckily the snow was only about fou" - Mount Megunticook, bwright, Nov 24, 2018
"2 semaines solo de pure plaisir à faire du hiking à différentes places dont les Whites Moutains. Journée un peu plus relaxe. Vu que c'est la fin de semaine, je me déplace dans l'ouest des Whites Mountains pour éviter la foule de la fin de semaine. Ici, près du Maine, il y a très peu de monde. Je n'ai rencontré qu'une dizaine de personnes tout au plus. Cette rando se veut très relaxante en tranquille." - Pine Hill, fsoucy76, Sep 23, 2018
"A long day of peak-bagging along the east side of Caribou Valley. Hit Sugarloaf first, then Spaulding then down over and up to Abraham. Finished up with a bushwhack to the old logging road by the pond and then a road march in the dark back to the car, 18+ miles in beautiful pre-fall weather." - Sugarloaf Mountain, JASTA11, Sep 23, 2018
