    If weather permits, maybe I'll see you up there. Gonna be tough though, been to busy to do much hiking. I wish they had a Huntington Ravine ale for the walk up

    If I weren't hiking for STP on the Wed. before I would love to do Huntington with you guys. I don't think I will try it alone though. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and you will have a blast.

    Sounds like a good plan to me.
    This will be my first attempt to climb Washington (I'm a bit worried).
    My goal - a safe round trip.
    pssst . . . I'm the grey-haired older woman with the cheery "good mornin'" for all.
    See you on the trails.

    We could ask for a special prize for the oldest hiker. After more than a week of doing things with 2 grandsons, waterskiing every morning, and doing a hike back into Tuckermans Ravine I feel a lot older!

    I agree!
    Let's get right on that.

    Take US 2 North/West to NH 115. Make a left on 115 (look for moose at that corner) and follow that to US 3. Make a left on US 3 and go south for a few miles. At the stop light go left onto US 302. Make a left onto Base Station Road (Cog Rail access road) and follow that to the trail head parking lot. My map program says 33 miles, and its fast driving.

    Or you could take Jefferson North Road. Access to that is off US 2 before you get to NH 115. That's only 17 miles. Maybe a better option if you want to cut down on the distance and don't mind a dirt road. I've never driven that road so I'm not sure how fast the road is.

    Depending on which family members decide to go for a walk that day, we will either do Lions Head up, Boots Spur down or Ammo up, Jewel trail down.

    If I am on my own (and the weather is good) I would like to do something with a bit more mileage, maybe start up Madison, hit Adams, Jefferson, Clay, Washington and finish down Lions Head or Boots Spur. Kind of an abbreviated traverse. If I do that I would be happy to have company, but we would probably start early from the Appalachia parking lot.
