 Mount Kearsarge
Good afternoon all! Just an update for folks on the status of the trails on Mount Kearsage, my German Shepard & I have just returned from a quick afternoon hike up Kearsarge. The Winslow trail (red & 1.1 mile) is in good shape, with plentiful red markings to lead the way, the trail is being well maintained with good waterbars in place. The Barlow trail (yellow & 1.7 miles) is also being well maintained and is well blazed for anyone not familiar with Kearsarge. Overall, I was impressed with the work being done on both trails. Nice mountain for a quick hike.

Another excellent hike is Kearsage North (3268'). Hiking the Mt Kearsage North Trail will give one the feeling you're ascending a 4,000 footer and it's such a lovely hike. The Weeks Brook Trail, both accessable from Hurricane Mtn Road on Rte 16 just North of North Conway in Intervale, is less steep, a little bit and visits Shingle Pond.

The fire tower on the mostly bare summit makes a great place to see the North Country with its' 360 degree views and stay out of the wind if need be. Don't forget to sign the summit register.

I did get a chance to climb Kearsage North late this summer and it was very nice :D The weather was great and the views were excellent! Been so busy with work I haven't had a lot of chances to get out otherwise, but am hoping to do more hiking or even cross country skiing this winter. Can't wait!
