Do NOT hike in New Hampshires White Mountain National Forest

Place is a fucking death trap. It looks super unassuming and nice, until you get fucking lost because any of the non-famous trails are just left to rot. Last summer I went hiking there, and since I am an Autist, chose to hike one of the lesser traveled trails up Mount Washington. Few hours pass and I realize I’m completely lost. There were so many dead leaves and shit on the trail that I lost track of it and wandered off of it by mistake. I was lost for two days without anyone to call for help or report me missing. Luckily I wandered onto a dirt road and followed it back to a highway, but I was super scared that I was going to end up in one of those Missing 411 books. The whole place is also covered in rocks and random hills, and it’s really easy to hurt yourself.

Do not hike there.

    Any place in the wild is dangerous if you're a clueless, inexperienced trailhiking cidiot. Next time be more prepared or stay in Boston.

    I like that 99% of those "missing 411" cases can be explained by an intense case of mental retardation and shitty S&R.

    Man, if only there had been a device you could have taken along that would have told you which direction you were heading, maybe using some crazy magnetic field sorcery

    Best time to hike there is january. Go in a tee shirt and sweatpants. Bring dry teeshirt and sweatpants and a jacket in case you get cold.

    Just say you’re an inexperienced zoomer who is too lazy to learn how to navigate and too poor to buy a GPS

    How did you even get lost??

    You can just turn back my man. There are easier ways to spend time in the woods.

    How the actual fuck does one get lost on Mt Washington? Just hike uphill. You get above the treeline and find where the fuck you want to go (probably the summit).

    you better be fucking trolling/10

      I've been lost 0.8 miles from the summit. Granted it was middle of February with 80 mph gust and in -40F ambient temp in white out conditions. Eventually I was able to locate the marker but decided to turn around cause it was gonna be rough to ride out that storm above tree line.

        >t. has never been on Mt Washington.
        Washington has a parking lot, a resto and a ranger station on its summit. Lake of the Clouds hut is near by. It has trails radiating out from the summit in all directions. It has a fucking train that runs up to the summit. It's bizarre combo of civilization but also danger as it is exposed and the weather can turn to shit very fast.

        Anyway, above the tree line, you will see hikers, hear the train, see the cairns and trail markers and get yourself unlost.

      Can’t you just get a GPS gay? Or just like, go on the main trail?

      I don’t like to interact with people, and I don’t like bringing advanced technology with me.

        Then fucking die, or learn to use a map.

        Also you don’t have to talk to anyone on a trail retard.

        Hiding it in your backpack pretending it's not there is better than potentially dying like a retard.

        You made a conscious decision to leave any navigational tools out of your kit, had a valuable learning experience, and here you are bitching about it. Next time stay lost for longer.

    next time use the gps maps on your phone, you can download offline maps for google maps or another app
    even without the offline maps it's a emergency compass that will run out of battery
