 10-14-06 Hancocks
Date(s) Hiked: 10/14/06

Trails(s) Hiked: Hancock Notch - Cedar Brook - Hancock Loop

Total Distance: 9.8 mi

Difficulty: Easy until the final ascent which is very steep (S Hancock has poor footing)

Conditions: Lovely!

Special Required Equipment: Boots. Stream crossings are abundant.

Trip Report:

This is hike #2 for the Saturday "Marathon"

This was a particularly exciting hike becasue I ran into someone who had seen my victory thumbs up page as a result of reading this forum (if you are reading: Hello!). That made my day BTW. Sadly I could not talk to the lady or her friends long becasue I did not have tons of time Anyways. Good hike overall but views were a tad lacking.

Read the full report with pictures here:

PS. I love old railgrades.
