SUPPLY CACHES ALONG THE CT
IMPORTANT NEW INFORMATION
The Cohos Trail is a long and isolated trail system. It is very difficult to get supplies along almost the entire length of the trail. So resupply is a real problem.
In order to attempt the entire trail, you will need to create supply caches along the way. Fortunately, a number of lodges, inns and campgrounds along the route will accept and hold supply caches, either for free or for a small fee.
Below are two lists. The first is a list of the stores that are on or within a half mile or so of the trail. The second list is a group of accommodation businesses that will accept caches.
List of Stores along the CT route (south to north)
- Bretton Woods Depot Store. This is a general store.
- Jefferson Village Store. A general store.
- The Balsams Grand Resort Hotel staff canteen. (Closed for renovations)
- Diamond Peaks Store, Dixville. 3 miles west of Dixville Notch.
