Ascent Trip Report

I hiked this mountain with some friends after hiking Pawtuckaway North.

The hike up was kind of steep and strenuous (probably because of our previous hike). We took a break at a grassy ledge and drank some water, and then went on to the fire tower.

The view from the fire tower was amazing. There was no haze, and all of southern New Hampshire was open to us. We decided to eat and drink on top of the fire tower. We stayed there for a while, and went back down the same way we came.

Overall, it was a good day. I don't hang out with friends that much, but that was a good and funny time we had.
