Ascent Trip Report

The trail offers beautiful views of Franconia Ridge once you get up to the look out rock before ascending to the look out tower. The trail we took had a steady incline for most of the way up but nothing really hard. We had great weather but there were a considerable amount of clouds when we finally reached the first lookout opening. The look out tower was cool but I enjoyed eating lunch my lunch at the look out rock and thought it was more peaceful than the look out tower. There's a gondola that goes to the summit so the top was flooded with people who hadn't been hiking.
