Great hike with a valley vista almost every 3/4 of a mile. It's about 2 miles to the first summit, then another mile to the "main summit" that has a sweeping view of the White Mountains including Mt Washington. On may 21, there were lots of ticks, flys, and mosquitos. Especially in the late afternoon! Round trip it took us about 6 hours. And we are slow hikers

Took this hike all the way to the summit. great hike. steep at the beginning. great lookouts and views
