    Easy hike, but you still climb enough for beginners to feel like they accomplished something. Even a Little Rock scramble and the end. Those rocks/Ledge allow for great views.

    Even though we hike a lot of hard stuff here in the White’s we like to take this hike when we have a short window of time, but want to get some time in nature. It’s always a good few hours in the woods.

    It’s great winter and fall too!

    Today we added 3 or 4 miles by taking cutoff and looping over (1.8 each way) to the top of Cranmore Mt.

    Another easy stroll through the woods with nice views from the ski lodge at the top of Mt. Cranmore. You share the space with folks that took the chairlift up but there are bathrooms, food and Tuckerman’s beer. Ha. That was a nice addition to our casual hike today.

    Hike was nice enough today. Took about 5 hours. Beautiful summer day. Most of the hike was shaded which is nice. Views were minimal. The view from Tom are limited due to pine trees getting a bit bigger. You can squeeze through some narrow paths to find a few other views but better check for ticks because both sides touch you the whole way.
    We went from Tom to Mt Fields. Relatively easy hike over 9/10th of a mile. No view from top but a nice overlook just a few steps down a path overlooking Mt. Washington and others and the Mt Washington Hotel.
    Form here to Mt Avalon all downhill. Look for the spur up to Avalon. Tougher climb up to Avalon but only 100 yards or so. Worth it. Best views of the day. Views down Crawford Notch and of AMC Highland Center.
    Enjoyable, moderate hike. You do check off 2 4K peaks but for a 0% rain day (like today) there are much better options with much better views.
    4 or 5 water crossings. All easy today but after a rain I could see how they could be tricky.
