"After North Twin, we went over to South Twin. Incredible day on the summit. No wind. We then went down to Galehead Hut. We also picked up one person on the way. While they went up Galehead, I took a brief nap at the hut. We then hiked down Gale River Tr, and the XC ski trail to Beaver Brook picnic area.

"Pretty cloudy the whole time but somewhat warm with no wind. Up the auto road to the look out, then took green over to the Belknap summit. Nice views from the fire tower. We took yellow down and tried an unbroken Blue boulder trail. Note to self, expect boulders and boulder fields on a trail called Boulder Trail. Then took Piper-Round Pond trail over to Old Piper and up to Piper Mt summit. Down Piper Mt to lower carriage rd." - Belknap Mountain, Alohabuffy, Feb 10, 2018

"Had to break trail in ankle deep snow. Lots of breaks. The exposed area was blasted with snow. Lost the trail. Ended up taking some backcountry ski trails to reach the main ski trails, then the summit. Headed back down the same way. Met one other hiker going up, who thanked me for breaking the trail." - Cannon Mountain, newenglandwarrior, Feb 5, 2018
"Saw in the trip reports that some people had gone up. I made the long road walk, then up to Carrigain Notch. Then I followed there tracks up to the summit. Left my snow shoes down below. The snow was firm. Felt great to get a bushwack peak done. #71 NEHH W" - Vose Spur, newenglandwarrior, Jan 30, 2018
