Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful day hiking the very long trail to Owl's Head, number 43 on the AMC NH 4000 footer list for me. The trail is mostly flat until you get to the Owl Slide Path. Lot of scree and slippery footing on this rocky path, but the views from the midway point up this trail are spectacular, especially this time of year. 18 miles of hiking is a lot for one day, but it was less rugged than doing a Presidential Traverse!
