Two Short Bushwhacks in New Hampshire's Crawford Notch


Beginning with this posting, I'm going to try something that is new to me by reducing the narrative, and putting more emphasis on captioned photos.  Should a reader desire more detailed information, I am most willing to reply to questions/comments posted to this blog; or, an e-mail can be sent to me (click HERE for address).

In mid-January 2016, two short treks were launched from the trailhead along Rt. 302 near the Willey House Station Site (not to be confused with Willey House Historic Site located a little farther north on Rt. 302).

I began with a short bushwhack to a beaver pond that is located just a short distance off the Saco River Trail near the junction with Webster Cliff Trail.  My second trek was also a short bushwhack.  The location was the north bank of Avalanche Brook in the general vicinity of the Willey House Station Site.
