Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest – 2022-02-19
Road was extremely passable, packed snow because of snow mobiles, icy in patches underneath fresh snow & deep snow accumulation along roadsides – your foot may plow through the snow in areas 2-3ft deep!
Microspikes were super useful, my hiking partner and I only had one pair so we both wore only one each and it was fine!
Some trees broken along road, easily passable
Parking & Road Access:
Parked at Mirror Lake Public Beach & hiked up Mirror Lake Rd (~.5 miles) to Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest and research laboratory.
There is some very interesting weather research equipment at the front door of Hubbard Brook Ecosystem Lab and interpretive signage about major research accomplishments & local ecology. Super cool!
