Dry River Trail Crawford Notch NH is a fantastic hike for all.  The first couple of miles to the bridge have little elevation gain.  It is a fun walk along the edge of the Saco River.  This April there was still a lot of snow on the trails…in the sections with no sun.  There are also many small water flows across the trial in the Spring time.  They are small waterfalls and streams that can easily be crossed stepping on the rocks.  Views of the river and the ledges are just beautiful on this hike.  We highly recommend this one for anyone!  When we arrived at the bridge there were notices that the area was still hazardous and closed across the bridge so we did not proceed.  This has been the situation since hurricane Irene swept through almost 2 years ago..the Saco  River rose 22 feet and birdges were compromised or washed away, giant log jams blocked trails and some trails were completely washed away.  We will try this trail again later in the season to see the conditions. The Dry River Trail starts just a few miles West of the Bartlett Inn on US Rte 302 in Crawford Notch.  Enjoy a yummy bed and breakfast at the Bartlett Inn and innkeepers will help with trails advice for the day!  Call 1800 292 2353.
