We hiked up to Lonesome Lake, while not a long hike it is a bit steep. The lake at the top is beautiful. Well worth your time.

We had lunch in North Woodstock before heading to the Notch. I am thinking that the Flume may be the only place to purchase food in the notch.

I've only been there once in the fall. Not sure about snow cover and when that would be gone. As far as mud, I wouldn't think there would be so much as there is so much granite. The trails in the park are exquisite. There... More
