The smallest of New Hampshire's 4,000 footers (standing at 4,003 feet tall) sits adjacent to Waterville Valley Ski area. A lovely hike to do during any season! Follow the trail 1.2 miles to a view point then another 1 (steep) mile to the cross trail between the Tecumseh Trail and the Sosman trail. From there, the summit is 0.3 miles away. There are limited views, but it is still beautiful!

This is a hike I did in the early part of Winter. It was a milder winter, and the trail was less snow-packed than I would have expected. My sister, her boyfriend and I were ok with standard waterproof hiking boots and didn't need snowshoes. In deeper snow pack, I would say this trail would absolutely require snow boots, and snow shoes would be recommended. It's a fun trail because parts of it run right along the Waterville Valley ski area and you can see the action on the slopes!

Trail starts out relatively flat. The middle section is mostly stairs with a constant uphill grade. Towards the top it flattens out for the last 1/2 mile or so. One viewpoint from the top, and one outlook on the trail.

In my journey to complete the NH48, I like to bring friends along who may not be looking to crush the 48, but who still might like to crush a summit beer with me. Tecumseh did not disappoint anyone! Plenty of parking at Waterville, which was a welcome change from some of the USFS parking lots and the like.

Not sure I would say it was easy. The last mile was straight up the mountain. It had limited views but nice nonetheless!!
