 Foolhardy wilderness road adventure?
Wednesday, I'm hiking the Welch-Dickey loop. Getting from Ossipee to RT93 offers the responsible grownup routes of the Kancamagus or RT25, I'll likely use both to make a loop out of the Welch-Dickey ride. But 4x4 temptation has me looking at Sandwich Notch Road which looks to be a ribbon of dirt from Sandwich center to RT49 in Thornton. Anyone familiar with that road?

Not sure what it means though. Officially, closed. Unofficially, use it if you want to leave your undercarriage behind. :?

Going with RT25, RT93, Kancamagus to RT16 loop ride. Watched a 2011 video of a biker running the road. It's single lane narrow. From the south I'd mostly be going uphill. Etiquette would have me backing up to the nearest siding to let someone pass.

FWIW I drove the entire length last fall thinking that I'd save time, but it was very rough and slow going in a few spots, and ended up what felt like forever to get to pavement. It just took so long slowing down to weave in between rocks and pot holes. It was beautiful country, but you definitely need patience to use it.
