Ascent Trip Report

Very clear day, little humid. There wasnt too many people on the trail, but seemed to drag on, a lot of elevation gain then back down. Definately worth taking the Eyebrow Trail as a sidebar. There is a cable to hold onto as you climb up the ledges. Once at the top the view from the observation tower is incredible. Views of Tablerock and other mountains in Grafton Notch and of course more of the White Mountains to the west.
