Beautiful hike through a sub-alpine/treeline ecosystem! First 30-45 minutes are pretty much straight uphill but then you're walking on the ridgeline until the Speckled Mt. summit. Ridgeline doesn't have many views but it's a wonderful walk over exposed rock, moss, lichens, and through small pines, red spruce, and low bush blueberries. Took us (we're novice hikers but athletic) about 2hrs to the summit and 2.5 down because we got caught in pouring rain. Summit had 270 degree views of the Whites. Would absolutely do again!
