Ascent Trip Report

Was planning to do Mt Everett with my dog, but the short driveway to the gate from Mt Washington Rd wasn't fully plowed yet and the guy with the plow said it would be at least another hour. Instead, I decided to do Race Brook Falls.

I parked at the Race Brook parking spot on Rt 41. It was snowing hard on and off, and it was a tough 1.5 miles to the falls. The trail was covered with snow...almost a foot in some places. Ate lunch with the dog at the falls which were raging and not frozen yet. On the way down I missed the trail marker and ended up at Race Brook Lodge and had to walk a half mile north on Rt 41 to get back to the car.
