July 2008. Mt. Whiteface via Blueberry Ledge Trail,
Mileage: 8.4 miles RT
Elevation gain: 2,900'
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!
