- Read Report
The focus of this project was the creation of a comprehensive analysis of alpine trail conditions in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, including recommended treatments and projected costs for addressing identified trail problems. A second goal was a review of available information about trail conditions in other alpine regions in the northeastern United States.
Effective management of alpine zone visitation has the potential to be significantly enhanced with a comprehensive overview of trail problems occurring due to overuse within a given region. The goal of this project was to generate that overview for the White Mountains, and to survey available information for other alpine zones in the Northeast.
