I'm heading out to Gorham, NH next week to attempt to finish the trail (NOBO) and was wondering if some of our northern trail residents or anyone hiking in the Whites and north can give an update on trail conditions. ATweather.org says weather is rainy and in the high 60's or low 70's, but if anyone has more insight, I'd like to hear it.

Are the black flies still raging or have they calmed down some?
