The Albany Mountain Trail
Route: Albany Mountain Trail
Trail was generally dry and in good shape. A dusting of snow above about 1,900 feet. Due to the bitter winds and a lack of daylight, we skipped going to the southern ledges (well worth it otherwise).
Amazing progress has been made by the trail maintainer in the past year, as significantly muddy areas of the trail have been built up and fixed. Lots of new steps and waterbars as well. Quickly becoming one of the nicest mountain trails in the WMNF.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 5 north from Lovell. A few minutes north of the Route 5-35 junction, take a left onto Patte Brook Road. A few minutes later, take a left onto Forest Road 18 (sign for the campground). The Albany Notch Trail parking lot and trailhead will be on the right a few minutes thereafter.
