    never been there but ill have a good map and a good light.if the trail is anything like the wilderness or the berryman trail it should be a clear trail.let me look the map over and check for intersecting trails.could you get there before dark?

    hey cb4 do you plan on using the o t as way to get to the bell mountain and if so what direction are you taking the loop clock wise or counter.

    Yes, we'll take the OT from the hwy A trailhead to the Bell Mt loop, then stay right to begin the loop counter clockwise. The peak is less than half way around the loop from there.
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    pm sent let me know if you want me to bring my mount washington 3 u q so you have 1 to use.its a loop so i think we will be fine we wil go in and wait to join cb4 so he can pick the camp he has in mind the next day.best part of a night hike is the trail out will be new to us in the day light.

    Looks like you guys can add 2 more to the hang. Myself and Honeybear will be along for the hike. Sure hope the fall colors hold out a little longer.

    Be careful if you decide to night-hike. There's lots of loose rock to twist an ankle on.

    always careful. yes would definately like to try the underquilt. will i still need to bring my rollmat? oh and soul is my railroad nickname. you can call me either. but most of my hiking friends call me multipass... there is a story but its best left for the campfire.lol but lets just say im glad this one actually is a loop. sorta how i got that name.. come to think on it.... wish i could change that screenname now but i use that almost everywhere else so......eh.

    yes the berryman was the same way i think its the horse travel that makes them so loose.i dont think you will need the pad but thats your call i would bring it in case something happened ,but the mount washington u q is of fine quality it should serve you well it has me.we will see what the trails like if we get a ways in and decide to hang there because of the loose trail ,no harm id feel safer in the woods than hanging in the parking lot.thanks for the heads up cb4.oh by the way get your booo hisss responce ready ,but id like to see it snow.i guess i shouldnt have said that i can see a group snow ball asault if it does.yeah yeah thats right it was gidean that wanted snow yeah thats right.lol
