Great hike. Not strenuous but has some minor stream crossings and rocky path requiring sure-footedness. Go to the hut for a nice view.

Great, great loop. Can really kick your butt if you aren't prepared for the level of intensity, but you'll be rewarded with great views and some great campsites.

Did this one last September as a solo day-hike. One of my favorites of the 4000'ers. Not a difficult hike but it is long. The first couple miles are very easy and wind through various types of terrain. There's also a brief but steep portion maybe 3/4's up. No views from the top but the cliff view is one of the best I've seen. I spent a good bit of time there. Stopped in at Zealand Falls hut to rest and use the restroom on the way up and back.

Completed my last 48 4000 footer on Carrigain. Beautiful hike! There's an awesome ridge prior to the summit and a fire tower at the very top. There is a small creek towards the bottom to cool off in afterwards. Great 360° at the top and an awesome way to finish this epic list!

A few friends and I thought this would be a good first attempt at an overnight trail. Boy were we in over our heads. Had a blast and took in some breathtaking views. It was worth the sweat, aches, and pains!

November 9, 2016: I started at 0500 and ended at 1900. It was cold, windy, and rainy. There's still some snow on the Lincoln/ Lafayette Ridge. It's a pretty tough climb, but once you're on the ridge top it's pretty easy to get some big miles in.

Amazing view from the top!

Long way in to the base of the mountain from Lincoln Woods but it's a relatively easy hike since it follows old logging railroad beds & roads. Once you get to Owl's Head Path (Slide), it's a steep and somewhat dangerous hike to the top which takes about an hour. Not one my favorite 4,000 footers since it takes a lot of effort with no payoff views at the top. Many river crossings which are easy during low water periods but may become much harder during high water periods.

easy and has amazing views!!

Steep accent - loose rocks - wooded "summit" - very few views. Glad to cross it off the list.

Amazing and worth the trip to the amazing hut. More like a house. Roomy, food and drink :-)
