Guidebook Descriptions:
1931 AMC White Mountain Guide
Bartlett Path (I.I.S.)
This path formerly ascended Mt. Bartlett from two points on the State Road in Lower Bartlett. It followed logging roads below and its own location above. After reaching the top of Mt. Bartlett, it continued on toward Mt. Kearsage and joined the Intervale Path in the saddle between the two mountains. It has been neglected and damaged by fire and logging; its present condition is problematical and its use is not advised.

1934 AMC White Mountain Guide
The Bartlett Path (I.I.S.) formerly ascended Mt. Bartlett from the highway (N.H. 16, 18) in Lower Bartlett, crossed its top and joined the Kearsarge Trail from Kearsarge Village in the saddle between Mts. Kearsarge and Bartlett. It would now doubtless be difficult to find and follow. Probably the ski trail, next to be described, would be preferable, even for summer use.

1940 AMC White Mountain Guide
The Bartlett Path (IIS) formerly ascended Mt. Bartlett from the highway (NH 16, US 302) in Lower Bartlett, crossed its top and joined the Kearsarge Trail from Kearsarge Village in the saddle between Mts. Kearsarge and Bartlett. It is now difficult to follow and the best approach to Mt. Bartlett, even in summer, is via Maple Villa Ski Trail.

1948 AMC White Mountain Guide
[Mt. Pequawket Trail]
On the ledges, m. beyond the spring and just above the saddle between Mts. Pequawket and Bartlett, the abandoned Intervale and Bartlett Paths come in together on the L, also the Maple Villa No. 5 Trail, leading to Lower Bartlett.
