Post subject:  Hale Fire Road Access

Hello,

We are the owners of the land at the end of Little River Rd. and the bridge that crosses the river, which provides access to the trail up the back side of Mt. Hale in winter. We wanted to let you know - and ask that you publicize - that this is a private drive to our home, but we are happy to have hikers use it to access the trail. We ask that hikers (a) do NOT use spikes, crampons, or snowshoes on the bridge, as it damages the wood deck; (b) stick to the trail (which is marked) which is on the left immediately after crossing the bridge, and (c) NOT drive across the bridge, as it is a private drive and not a forest road or trail.

Thanks for your help. We made a big investment to replace the old bridge, put in the drive, and build our house - and glad that the bridge has made it easier for hikers to access the trail. We hope that we can keep that all open and available to everyone and still maintain the privacy of our home.

Doug and Mary

Hi Doug and Mary,

Thank you for your kindness in allowing this access. I saw your information on New England Trail Conditions as well. Good idea to post on as many forums and sites as possible, as some may not be read that often. This will give your message a better chance of being seen. If my daughter, Prema, and I ever get the chance to go there we will remove our traction before crossing your bridge.

Thanks, Beckie
