Mt. Chocorua 4/24/10 TR
Trails: Up, Piper-Weetamoo-Hammond-Liberty; Down, Piper. We started at 8am and finished at 2:30pm. What a great hike. Plenty of rock scrambling, views and Weetamoo rock is something. I even got to climb this 50 ft. tall boulder! We ran into snow in the col. areas particularly between the sister peak. There really wasn't the crowd I thought we would run into. About 6 pairs of people at the top and several coming up Piper. Not bad for Chocorua! Found 1 lonely painted trillium at the start of Weetamoo trail, sweet! Blacflies popped in once-in-a-while but for the most part were non-existant, thanks in part to the wind.
