Mt. Hanock (North & – 2019-09-07

Destination: Mt. Hanock (North &
Trails: Hancock Notch, Cedar Brook, Hancock Loop
Hike Date: 2019-09-07
 

Conditions:
Water was pretty low, stream crossings were nothing to worry about. Trail was very dry despite drizzle in the morning, just a few avoidable mud spots. Steep parts on the loop were completely dry. Just a few birchblowdowns close to the trailhead but easy to step over.
Very enjoyable hike in spite of the extreme incline below the summits.

Trail Maintenance:
Two birch blowdowns on Hancock Notch Trail, although not majorly obstructing the trail.
