Black Mtn. Benton NH – 2019-06-01

Destination: Black Mtn. Benton NH
Trails: Chippewa Trail
Hike Date: 2019-06-01
 

Conditions:
Chippewa Trail is in fine shape. The timber harvests did not effect the trail much, just head straight thru the small cleaning.

Equipment:
Bug spray. Black flies and mosquitoes were a bit of a pain

Trail Maintenance:
One step over right at the start of the trail. We took some branches off a leaner over the trail. Collected about a dozen beer cans and bottles, and single use water bottles around the summit.

Parking & Road Access:
Room for 3 cars on an unmarked road side pull off.

Comments:
Beautiful hike. Love the red pine forest up high. Summit ledges are awesome.
