Short but sweet. Hiking along stream for maybe 1/4-1/3 of trail. Beautiful view at summit. Best part? Ran into only one other person - no Chocorua traffic jams here :-)

Loved it! Beautiful trail. Make it a loop and it takes you by water falls and across scrambles

A good hike with several steeps. Took Sandwich Mt trail past Noon Peak and up to Mt Jennings. Hiked Drakes trail down. Lots of toads today!

You must cross the brook to continue on this trail.

I ascended via the Jennings Peak Trail. This is a beautiful (relatively steep & rocky) trail with some scramble / climbing required.
Jennings Peak has excellent views.
I opted to extend this loop by including Sandwich Mountain. The trail to Sandwich is similar to the rest of Jennings Peak Trail. The summit has limited but very nice views to the north. This is a good place to eat a sandwich.
I backtracked from Sandwich and descended via Drakes Brook Trail. I found this route to be a gentle, gradual descent (relative to Jennings Peak Trail).

You must cross the brook to finish this trail.
