    Looking back I see that I was last there in 1999. In addition to the briars, a lot of dead spruce and hemlock had come down across the trail. We ripped our clothes up pretty good by the time we...

    Sorry to learn this. I met him at the ATC meeting in Harrisonburg back in '95 and haven't seen him since. I had no idea he was that old.

    As the story is out of Sandwich, NH this is likely the Blueberry Ledge Trail on Whiteface. It's a steep, south-facing trail with open ledges on the upper part.

    That trailhead has had a number of problems

    Park at Big Creek ranger station. You'll have an extra 3/4 mile the last day but it's downhill. Better than finding your car with no radio or windows (or just missing). I've never had a problem at...

    Agree with Bulldog

    Did it last year NB from Erwin. The climb up Roan from the south is a b*^$#. There are also occasional vandalism problems at Carvers Gap. Don't leave a vehicle there.
