 Trail Conditions
I'm new to the forum and perhaps I am mistaken, but I don't believe there is a section specifically devoted to Trail Conditions. There is a section in the forum dedicated to Trip Reports which is very helpful, but would it also be helpful to have a section just so people can have a place to post Trail conditions :?:

You can also find out about current trail conditions at the White Mountain National Forest
homepage: http://www.fs.fed.us/r9/forests/white_mountain/ Another good resource (where a lot of members of this forum visit) is:
http://www.viewsfromthetop.com/forums Scroll down to bottom half of the page for Trail conditions. Ranger stations are also good sources for current trail info....

Ranger district Phone Numbers:
603-869-2626 (Pemigewassett Ranger District)
603-466-2713 (Androscoggin Ranger District)
603-447-5448 (Saco Ranger District)

For the latest info about trail conditions near the AMC Huts:
http://www.outdoors.org/recreation/trip ... /index.cfm

For a "higher summits forecast",

This is their link to trail conditions, actually it may be the same as above.

I've had some good luck talking to the AMC folks -

White Mountains trail information and weather 603-466-2721
or AMCPinkhamInfo@outdoors.org


*Usually* who(m?)ever I get at the ranger districts can only tell me about stuff like bridges being out, or other big 'touristy' things like the foliage ....they usually aren't able to tell me about hiking trail conditions. We aren't their major market I think ...but occasionally I do get the right person and they can be helpful ...

Trailsnh.com is my preferred site. It even pulls all the reports from this forum.

I like http://newenglandtrailconditions.com/.

They poll other sites, like VFTT... and this one, and include a massively comprehensive list of trip reports and conditions.

Yes. TralsNH is my favorite or Newenglandtrailconditions.com if I'm looking outside of NH. TNH is great because it shows a map of where all the trips are so even if you don't see the exact trail you're looking for you can see what things are like all around it or see what's in a certain area.

Trail conditions serve a purpose but Id much rather read an extended report and hear peoples experiences and impressions and see pictures too. The "trail in good shape. No issues" condition reports don't do much for me personally but to each their own. People should be prepared for whatever seasonal conditions might arise and not plan based on one conditions report IMO.
