View Full Version : White Mountain Hiking Resources and Links

01-30-2010, 04:58 PM
After the suggestion from Andrew (fallenrockzone) for a Links page I decided to get the ball rolling. I have a ton of White Mountains and NE hiking resource sites that I use all the time so I figured this was a good place to start. Bill had suggested a thread in the general section but I think there are so many hiking resources that it's worth having one in this forum just for that purpose. We could start another one for non-hiking links in the general forum. Please add your links to this and help make it the place to come to for all things hiking in the Whites and New England.

Here's another one. It's actually a bot that scans the other sites for new trail condition reports:


I think my favorite is Fred Shirley's:


His photo galleries and catalogs are hard to beat. I identify a lot of plants there.

Great idea. Some we have and others we do not (we'll certainly add a few). Fred Shirley was one of the first links we found years ago.
Now all I need to do is find more time to hit the links.:D
