Ascent Trip Report

Cousin from Germany was in town the same time my (future) wife and I were visiting from college. We planned a big family picnic on Kearsarge since it has the auto road to the scenic parking lot making this a very doable hike for all ages and fitness levels. The whole top is exposed rock and the fire tower on top was open and we were able to go inside. Was a great time, with some great views.
