#7 Mt. Whiteface July 2008.

#7 Mt. Whiteface via Blueberry Ledge Trail,  July 2008.  

Mileage:  8.4 miles RT

Elevation gain:  

Trailhead: The parking area is called Ferncroft, 
 down a short dirt road off of NH Rt 113A, where the main road takes a 90 degree turn by a white church. The parking area is .5 miles down the dirt road, on the right. A WMNF parking pass is required.

Hiked with Norm, Charlotte, Marie, David, Eileen and Art.   Blueberry Ledge trail is listed on the Terrifying 25 (a list I am not working on but you may be!). Rock face was dry but steep. We took the Blueberry Ledge Trail up and back (this hike was revisited when I bagged East Sleeper - trip report here).  

Rich wanted to see if he could descend the rock face.  Charlotte and Marie took another trail back down.  This is the first time I have seen him want to challenge his abilities hiking.  

Blue skies and dry day and the views were spectacular!
