Jan 29th hike
4 of us are going to hike MW next week and we are trying to figure out what trail to take. (Thinking either Ammonoosuc or Tuckerman/Lion Head)
In December of 08' we left out of Pinkham Notch and took Tuckerman Ravine to Lion Head Winter. It was a nice hike but coming down we tried a different trail close to the auto road (i forget the name). We ended up losing the trail and then ended up trudging down the auto road.
We have taken Ammonoosuc many times in the past but never this late in the year (maybe middle November at the latest). I think Ammonoosuc is more scenic but there is no escape route to the auto road if things get rough.
Im wondering how others have faired taking Ammonoosuc around this time of year, where do we park and any other helpful info you might have?
