Includes trail info for Middle and South Carter Summits. If traveling up 19 Mile Brook Trail to Carter Dome Trail to Carter-Moriah Trail, it is an easier grade than going up the Imp Trail to Carter-Moriah Trail and thus can be summited faster. Going up the first route is easier and unique from other New England trails due to the use of switch backs (zig zagged trails that work up the face of a mountain reducing a steep climb rather than a straight trail up).
