Another New England classic, Tripp and I decided to hike Mansfield last weekend. The weather turned out to be excellent with almost no clouds at all and temps in the mid 60s. We got up at the crack of dawn, drove up via I93 to I89 and hit the trail at 11 AM. There are numerous parking areas in Smugglers Notch, providing easy access to the trails.
Today was really the first day that went smoothly. We made good time (over easy terrain) and got to our destination (11ish) miles early.
Sunny but we were beat. Would have been enjoyable but we were hurting pretty bad. Managed 2 15 mile days back to back but we paid for it.
