  • Jay Mountain Trail Conditions?

    I am planning to hike Saturday and am curious how much snow is on the Jay mountain trail/top. I will have snowshoes/spikes regardless but not looking to break trail if I can avoid it (looks to be warmer lately at least). Thanks in advance,

    Have not been up there in a while, but I would guess there is a boatload of snow, like everywhere around here (I'm in Keene). Definitely snowshoes. Saturday looks to be warmer, but with some drizzle, so bring multiple waterproof layers, glove changes, etc..

      Climbed Big Slide via the Brothers on 3/9. Rock ledges were melting, but out of the sun there was about 5 feet of snow on the ground. Track was so packed that we kept microspikes on the whole time. Not sure how well Jay is broken out.

      They got another 5 inches of powder when I left on Sunday. I know they were expecting rain but no matter how hot it gets there will still be a lot of snow up there.

      I assume you're asking about the Jay Range.

          Fyi for anyone else, trail to first lookout was an ice rail so only spikes. Snowhoes past that point though.
