Nice loop hike! We parked the car in the Crawford Path trailhead off of Clinton Road and walked 5-10 minutes down the road to the Webster-Jackson trailhead. The weather was cool and cloudy, so the trail wasn't very busy. After summitting Mount Jackson, it's an easy walk through the bogs to the Mizpah hut, which is a great place to stop for lunch. From there, it's a steep but short hike up to the summit of Pierce, and then a moderate descent down the Crawford Path back to the car. It took us about 6 hours including a long lunch break at the hut.
