Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful hike on a beautiful day. The stream crossing at the beginning was a little tricky but I managed to get across with minimal foot soaking. (On the way back I just waded through a shallow section, knowing I had dry socks and shoes in the car.)

I saw only seven other people on the trail and had the summit to myself for at least 20 minutes. The group of four arrived there just as I was leaving. I was surprised to see such an amazing view from the summit; even knowing that the peak is on the 52WAV list, I was not expecting to see Mt. Washington and so many other excellent mountains.

The trail is lovely too.
