Ascent Trip Report

We hiked Esther then Whiteface on 8/11/12. It wasn't too challenging as it was about 70 degrees and comfortable. We started the hike at 220 and reached Esther at 420. Then peaked on Whiteface at 620 and were back at the car at 820. The views were minimal as it was cloudy at the top. It's a great hike and your family/friends can meet you at the top of Whiteface as there's a road to the top. But they kick everyone off the top at 6, as they close the road at 7.
