Welch Dickey Trail
On Saturday I hiked the famous Welch-Dickey trail in the White Mountains, NH. I have never hiked this trail before, but heard much about it. It is a very well maintained trail, and very unique. It deserves its accolades for not only the spectacular views it offers for a moderate effort, but the wide, granite slab trials you traverse for most of the way are unlike any other. The only other trail I remember hiking that is similar is Mt. Cardigan, and Mt Monadnock. Both have the wide open alpine trails, but on Welch-Dickey there is more openness. It is NOT a trail to try on a very windy or rainy day. Here are some pictures, including me with my Team in Training (TNT) pals.
