|Others in Party:||Megan Griffin|
|Date:||Wednesday, July 19, 2017|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-New Hampshire|
| Elevation:||2532 ft / 771 m|
Ascent Trip ReportA wonderful little mountain for a clear day. Great views into the Whites from the east ledges and the summit. Moderate trail on the counter clockwise loop, though the trail down is a little hard on the knees. Nothing serious, but if you have bad knees you should be aware of the down slope.
Really nice footing the whole way with a little bit of slab granite to work through. There is something for everyone on this trip. Hard woods, conifers, ledges, views...everything in one little trip. A great hike for beginners or someone just getting back into the game!
Our pace was slower this trip due to having a newer hiker with us.
