New England fall at its finest. Combined with Passaconaway for an impeccable loop.

Took Blueberry Ledge trail from Ferncroft. Saw moose during a short break for water. Moose stood 30 feet from us, staring, then ran off. Snow and ice on top half of mountain. Very icy and challenging scrambles up icy rocks and even trickier going down. Fun, challenging hike would love to repeat in summer! 3 hrs up, 2 down.

Took the Blueberry Ledge Trail up to Whiteface before doing Passaconaway in as part of a 12-mile loop (approx.).

I went up Whiteface via the Blueberry Ledges, which was one of the more challenging hikes in the Whites than you would expect. It was fun though, because you get some pretty darn good views along the way. I then took the Rollins Trail over to Passaconaway.

Climbed with Passaconaway via the Dicey's Mill Trail from Ferncroft. A very long traverse between the two peaks. Great views of the Ossipee Range and the Winnipesaukee Region from the ledges below the summit. It would be nice if someone put a sign up on the true summit so at least you would know it when you get there.

Hiked up the Blueberry Ledge Trail, hot and muggy, as I climbed the mountain I would walk in and out of different temperature zones alternating between hot and muggy and cool and breezy. Stopped and hung out for a few minutes at the South Peak before heading over to Passaconaway on the Rollins Trail. It looks like there are a lot of nice campsites pretty high up on the mountain. Between the South Peak and the true Summit (I believe at the site of one of the old shelters) there was a semi temporary shelter setup. There was a heavy duty tarp strung up between two trees with some tools underneath it and what appeared to be other camping gear stashed up in a tree a couple hundred feet away. I am not sure if it is supposed to be a semi permanent low impact shelter or if it is something trail work crews had setup while they were working. I saw two trail work crews while I was hiking so I might lean towards the later explanation.

Climbed up the blueberry ledge trail to the summit and then traversed the ridge to the East Sleeper to tag that summit for the 100 highest in NE. That trail is longer than you would think and the Sleeper has absolutely nothing for views off the top and is a real "Sleeper" hehe.

The weather was gorgeous when I conquered this peak. The steep ledges near the top are not for the faint of heart. There are obvious holes where the rungs used to be, but they have somehow disappeared and left hikers to fend for themselves. As a rock climber I had a good time. But they are definately not easy to scramble up. Poles can help sometimes, but often just get in the way. There are some great views along the way up. I wouldn't want to attempt the ledges going down.



A word of advice for those working on your 4000s, the true summit of Whiteface is off the trail heading over to Passaconaway. The top ledge is not "it." So, if you are a stickler for the truth, keep going towards Passaconaway in order to bag the true summit.

Long day hike- scary going up the slide, at least for me at that time. Good way to get over your fear of heights.

Overcast but otherwise a fine day. Final ledge on BBL trail very slippery (two inches of wet snow); another party took about ten minutes getting up it while we were stopped for lunch.
