Ascent Trip Report

Great hike. 19 Mile Brook Trail is a great trail. It was a chilly day with a little frost on the top too. I only ran into one person until I got to the summit. Great views of the Presidentials on the summit ridge. Views on all sides. Summit is in the woods. Summit cairn. The trip down the Imp Trail was not so good. Very wet, rocky, and never-ending. Then the mile and a half road walk at the end, uphill, was relentless.
