The following from the President of the Cohos Trail Association:

I am working on maps of the White Mt. region and the Pittsburg region. I will be scanning the new 1"/100,000' maps from the USGS this week so that I can get you an idea of the full extent of the trail.

The color maps I am working on (different ones) are in the final stages of development. I'm about two weeks away from completing both of them, I believe, after six months of work. These I will save as Jpegs and send them to you to look over.

The White Mt. section is largely on existing trails in the White Mt. National Forest, including the Davis Path, Isolation Trail, Eisenhour Trail, Edmands Path, old Bridle Path and rail grade to the Mt. Washington Hotel, the Black Brook Trail, Cherry Mt. Trail, Martha's Mile, Owlshead Trail, old B&M railbed, Route 115, Starr King Trail, and Kilkenny Ridge Trail to South Pond.

The middle section, which you have posted, is rapidly being developed so that we can open the trail formally in the summer all the way to Stewartstown's Coleman State Park.

From there north, the way is only proposed and is not yet in the formal planning stages. However, I will furnish a map of the region with the main trail and alternatives as we will probably propose it to the landowners and the state.

The trail will literally be a trans-Coos County trail, running from the very southern tip of the county to the very northern boundary with Canada -- about 150 miles or so.
