Guidebook Descriptions:
1940 AMC White Mountain Guide
Bread Tray Ridge Trail (WMNF)
This new route makes Mt. Osceola more accessible since the grade follow is relatively easy. Unfortunately the hurricane of 1938 demolished the stands of virgin spruce through which this trail wound its way and the subsequent salvage logging operation will leave this area one of very high fire hazard. The trail will not be open to the general use of the public for an indefinite period.

1948 AMC White Mountain Guide
Mount Osceola Trail (WMNF)
This trail combines the former Breadtray Ridge and Osceola-Greeley Ponds trails.
