Trailheads, measurements, times, distances, and maps are all approximate and relative to the hike(s) as shown below.

Appalachian Trail

My original intent was to hike the Appalachian Trail north from Mad Tom Notch over Styles Peak, however a sign saying no vehciles kept me away (I was unsure how much of a road hike I'd have to do to get to the trailhead). As a result, I went to plan B, which was to hike Bromley from the Route 11 trailhead.

Despite the unseasonably warm December, the trail was definitely winterlike. While there was only a dusting of snow at the base, pretty much everything above 2,100 feet had an inch or two of solid crust.

The ski area seemed busy considering the limited amount of terrain open.
