Route: Kearsarge North Trail, Bartlett Path, (Bartlett Mountain), Bartlett Path, Kearsarge North Trail

Though it was lightly raining at the trailhead, the forecast called for gradual clearing by sunset. While the first portion of the Kearsarge North Trail was bare, there was patchy snow near the first switchback. Reaching the top of the ledges, we donned snowshoes and headed along the ridge to Barlett Mountain, generally following the route of the old Bartlett Path.

After passing over the summit, we headed over to the northwest ledges. While we had passing views of the Jackson area, no sunset colors were to be had.

As we headed back across the ridge, the skies cleared, resulting in a nice, starlit descent with the lights of Conway in the distance.
