Mt. Washington/Great Wall 8/23/2017

A nice solo hike to the summit of Mount Washington. I took the main trail up and the Great Wall down.

Turns out they are still doing some work on the trail during the week, as I was almost spied by a vehicle chugging along (I slipped a few yards down a ravine and made myself scarce before I could be seen) and near the junction of the Great Wall and Change Creek trail there was a cache of equipment.

So I guess I will stay off the Great Wall during the week until they officially re-open it.

I saw exactly two other hikers, both when I joined back up with the main trail on the way down. Truly, mid-week hiking is the way to go.

Perfect weather, great views.

    1. It sure is. And this hike, on the Great Wall trail, features about 1.5 miles of uninterrupted eastern views of the surrounding mountains and forests. The trail is actually a nice, wide service road so you can gaze at the view without worrying about falling off a ledge.
