Ascent Trip Report

Took my seven year old son Christian to get ready for our trip to New Hampshire. We had to figure what he was comfortable doing (distance and elevation) so we could plan hikes within his capability. He did pretty well. WE climbed tothe Pinwheel vista via the AT and a side trail, had lunch at vista. Continued north on AT for a couple miles, then turned around back to car. We did a bit over 7 miles round trip. The view fron the vista is a worthy reward for the effort of the climb! I did, however get to where the log book was - will have to confirm if this araea was the true summit or not. It sure does not look it, in retrospect. Will return.
