    Tom Perkins reviewed Mount Osceola Trail

    4 months ago

    Mount Osceola was my second 4000-footer in the Whites. Hiked in from the Kancamagus Hwy. The first 1.2 mile was through the Greely Pond area and was basically flat. The next 1.5 mile to the top of East Osceola was grueling and offered few views. The next mile to the top of Mount Osceola was pretty easy and offered a stunning 180 degree view.

    This trail was clearly a road at one time and the ascent is relatively gentle with switchbacks. Unlike many hiking trails in the Northeast it is relatively free of large rocks and boulders. You can make great time on this trail.
    We went in mid-April, so the trail was very muddy in places. Above 3100 ft, there was a lot of ice and snow on the trail, so bring microspikes or crampons. The summit however was free of snow and ice. There are few views until reach the ridge line.
    There is no parking at the trailhead. In fact, Breezy Point Rd. is closed to thru-traffic about 1/4 mile from the trailhead. You have to park on the side of the gravel road before the road closure.
    There were many people at the summit, but we met no one on the trail until the Snapper Trail junction. So, it seems to be relatively unused. However, the solitude was great. Marking this as one of my favorite trails.
