11/29/09 Giant Slide Loop and Sgt. Mtn.
Cold but sunny. Since it had rained the last two days and we thought the trails would all be wet we decided to do a carriage road loop. This loop was 8.2 miles long and started at the Parkman Mtn. parking area. Kelley seemed like she wanted to get onto a trail so we decided to climb the Sargent Mountain N Ridge Trail which crosses the carriage road. This added 1.4 miles to the hike but more significantly was quite a challenge. There was a lot of ice on the trail making footing treacherous and I felt we did well to complete it without injury. Even Kelley was trying to avoid the ice. 4 hours.
