Mount Whiteface Climbing Notes

RickNH from UNITED STATES writes:

Hiked up the blueberry Ridge Trail to Whiteface over to Passaconaway, then down Dicey's mill. At 2.0 miles is the junction to the Cutoff which I recommend taking over the Blueberry Ledge trail to this point. The cutoff is a bit steep at the end but is a nicer trail. They seems to have put some switch backs in that were not on my mapping GPS which was nice. Another route up is the Tom Wiggins trail that is not recommended due to steep and loose footing (It is mentioned on the trail markers at the terminus and head.) The last 1/2 mile or so of Blueberry ledge is on the terrifying 25 list and I know why! There is one place where the trail dumps you out onto a very slanted slab that seems to simply disappears into the abyss (scary!). Pause at the overlooks because the summit is anti-climactic. Path down the other side is nicer to you and nothing abnormal over there to Passaconaway. Take Dicey's mill down, its a really nice trail. Where it crosses the river there is an illegal but established campsite close to the trail. There is no water up blueberry to the summit of Whiteface. There is a water source just as you start climbing Pass and all along Dicey's.
