An alternate way up to Mount Webster and Mount Jackson taking in the wonderful views of Crawford Notch. Park at the Crawford Depot and head south down the Crawford Notch Road to the Willey House. This allows for excellent views of the Webster ridge, 2,500' above! Enter woods at Willey Pond Trail and work your way over to the Webster Cliff Trail via Sam Willey. Walk the Webster ridge to Webster summit with many vista opportunities of the Notch. Continue over to Mt Jackson then descend via the Webster-Jackson Trail back to the parking area.

I decided to take in the Webster ridge on my way up #43 Mt. Jackson. I parked at the Crawford Depot and walked the 3 miles down to the Willey House. That was better than it sounds since you can take in the entire ridge and see what you're about to trek. I really nice trail up to the Webster Cliffs Trail, this is the AT. The first ledge blew my mind, 180 degree views of the stunning Crawford Notch! Continued along the ridge with similar views along the way. Ducked into the woods again to get over to Mt Jackson then met 2 Prez Traverse folks on the way down and out. This is an A++ route and hike.
