|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-New Hampshire|
| Elevation:||1786 ft / 544 m|
Ascent Trip ReportDid a late morning/early afternoon hike up Major with my Dad. Trails were crunchy but packed out. The lower part of the Brook Trail was kind of meh, but the upper part, as well as the last 0.4 mile on the Belknap Range Trail, was very pleasant. Summit views were excellent as always. My Dad did not expect them to be that good- he wants to come back again!
This one was a success in my book.
