Stage 157

⇐ Link to the previous stage: 156 - APPALACHIAN TRAIL - NEW HAMPSHIRE - Section 4.2 - From Galehead Hut to South Twin Mountain, Mt. Guyot and Zeeland Falls Hut
⇒ Link to the next stage: 158 - APPALACHIAN TRAIL - NEW HAMPSHIRE - Section 3.4 - From Route US-302, Crawford Notch, to Mt. Webster, and Mizpah Spring Hut

Tour of the Appalachian Trail ( Appalachian Trail ), passing through the state of New Hampshire (United States), from south to north, inside the White Mountain National Forest. From the Zeeland Falls Hut, to the intersection of the AT with US-302, at Crawford Notch State Park.

At this stage the AT follows the same route that also uses the minor path called "Ethan Pond Trail".

We start the tour very early, at dawn, at the Zeeland Falls Hut, hostel managed by the Appalachian Mountain Club, located a few meters from the waterfalls of the same name.

We descend a short distance to the crossroads located in the hill of Zeeland Notch, very close to a small reservoir (Zeeland Pond), and there we head south, along a narrow and flat path, also used by the ¨Ethan Pond Trail¨, which runs parallel to the Whitewall Brook course.

At some points along the route, the abundance of rocks and shortage of woodland allows us to contemplate the extensive stones located on the slopes of the Whitewall Mountain and at the base of the valley, formed by the disintegration of large blocks of rock, into smaller and smaller fragments. , because of the phenomenon of "weathering" (caused over thousands of years, by the action of water, ice, snow, wind, temperature changes, tree roots, and many other climatic factors and environmental).
