 Road less traveled
Traffic wear makes it fairly obvious for staying on trail in the summer. But in the quieter fall the path is obscured by leafs & in winter by snow . I'm wondering if there is a source that might tell when a trail's blazings (blazens?)were last repainted? I've a lot of hikes I've yet to do. This time of year knowing which trails have good blazings could contribute my hike decision criteria.

Maybe contact the AMC?? They might know from their trail adopter feedback what's been done more.

As far as the Whites go I've found the more traveled paths strangely blazed better than the less traveled ones even though many are hard to lose in any season, even with leaves or snow. The ones in the wilderness areas are almost never blazed. I don't know if that's policy or not to leave it looking as wild as possible.

Trails that would likely attract the most tourists seem to be blazed with the heaviest hands. The AT and its side trails always seem well marked too.
