Went up the Sandwich Mountain Trail and came down the Drakes Brook Trail. The scenery is beautiful along Drakes Brook. I definitely recommend making the short trek to Jennings Peak. The views are incredible. Decided not to hike to the Sandwich Mountain summit after reading other reviews and talking to hikers on the trail who said it wasn't worth it.

This is a beautiful trail - definitely go UP sandwich mountain trail. The woods are gorgeous and the views from Jennings are great. Views from Sandwich just ok (mostly trees) - not sure it's worth the extra 1-1.5 hrs to get there and back... minimal snow just under sandwich peak.

Love to ascend using Jennings peak trail onto sandwhich. Descending using Drakes brook is definitely much easier than descending on Jennings Peak trail. Once you get to the top of Jennings the last couple of miles is a relative cake walk. Highly recommended.

Pleasant Loop trail over 3 summits; Noon Peak, Jennings Peak and Sandwich Dome. Each summit has a viewpoint, but Jennings Peak is best. The ascent on Sandwich Mountain Trail and descent on Drakes Brook Trail is easiest.
