About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Dublin Trail has a new trail entrance a short distance south of the old entrance.  The Dublin Trail formerly known as the Farmers Trail and is one of the oldest paths on the mountain, and is considered one of the shorter easier trails to summit.  The trail is well marked by White Tags nailed to trees and by white painted D’s higher up.  The Dublin trail starts on Old Troy Rd. may not be maintained for winter use and the road can be deep mud in early spring.  If anybody wishes to hike the old trail it has been wiped out by logging and is unrecognizable (I followed it using a GPS track).  The new current path passes through an area of young trees with noticeable logging on both sides nearby.  The path crosses a logging road and soon joins the original Dublin Trail.  The trail becomes more rocky and heads uphill through a forested ridge and the forest changes from hardwood to spruce a short way up.  The path can be muddy in spots.  The path starts to become exposed ledge with views to the north and west as the trail gets near the Marlboro junction.  From the Marlboro junction the path continues on ledge along a gully that can be icy in winter.  The path is well marked with paint blazes and cairn rock-piles to the open barren summit cone.

Lyndsey started hiking when her daughter Aubrey (5)  was just a few months old. Lyndsey and Aubrey have been hiking together for almost 5 years now and have made some impressive climbs over those years. Lyndsey has been an ambassador for Hike it Baby since January 2015. They live in the Monadnock Region of NH and they have many small mountains to hike all around them and they venture the two hours north to the White Mountain National Forest as often as they can. Lyndsey and Aubrey started their NH 48 4,000 footer list when Aubrey was just 3.5 years old. To date, they have completed 2/48. They have been working on the NH 52 with a View list as well and have completed 7/52. 

Hiking had such a huge influence on getting over PPD that she wanted to help other local parents get out on the trails and build a community that is different from the other typical mom groups. Over the years she has learned so much about hiking with young children, from picking different carriers to choosing trails for toddlers. She wants to share her knowledge to help others, as this information was impossible to find when she was just starting out hiking with Aubrey!

Lyndsey also writes for her own personal blog www.summitmommy.com that chronicles her and Aubrey’s hiking adventures together as well as offers articles and trail suggestions for families hiking in New Hampshire!
