We registered for a pass to be able to park at the main headquarters. Parking lot wasn’t that crowded even arriving at 9:30am. There was construction on the main road leading into park. Bathrooms were open with entrance via one door, exit the other. Started up white dot at 9:45am.

The trail was in great shape, wet in some areas but not too bad. The number of people thinned as we made our way to cascade. Really enjoyed this, not as steep as white dot. Then too spellman to pumpelly. The rock scrambling was fantastic but not easy. Very well marked the entire way. Typical Monadnock, the wind was brutal at the top with easily a 20+ degree temperature difference. We chose to come down white cross to ensure we’d arrive back at the main headquarters.
