I'm planning on hiking Monroe/Washington on Saturday if the weather holds. I was wondering what the plowing/access situation is for Base Station road leading to the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trailhead. I don't want to get stuck before I even get to the trailhead! Any trail conditions that haven't been posted on sites such as trailsnh would be appreciated as well :)

The Base Road is usually plowed, though I don't know if it is a high-priority road for the plow crews (I doubt it). Note that there's a couple of hills that can be interesting if icy/snowy and your tires aren't up to snuff.

That said, come Saturday it should be cleared of any new snow (sounds like they're calling for only a couple inches tomorrow/Thurs.) and good to go. There was a lot of traffic in there over the past weekend.

Thanks for the reassurance. From what I've read there has been a bunch of people up there lately and the weather for Saturday looks awesome! I did the Hancocks instead of this trip a couple weekends ago as it was too cold/windy so I'm hoping this weekend will be better. My little Honda Fit hasn't failed me on all the snowy roads all winter even during the traffic ban :lol:

My eclipse made it after 6 or so inches fell, your fit can also. Unplowed as well.
