it was beautiful, the hike was a little steep and wet because it had just rained but the view was so worth it.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! For a Saturday around 11 am, it was not too crowded (think we were smart to go the weekend before memorial day weekend) I feel like this is a hidden gem within the White Mountains. The hike itself is quite easy, steadily incline the whole way. Mostly a rock path. Cool waterfall early on. Not much to look at on way up, but once you reach the top.... BREATHTAKING. We spent an hour just sitting at the top. Truly spectacular.

Très facile! Une belle randonnée accessible à monsieur et madame tout le monde. Vue magnifique époustouflante qui vaut la peine! Et même la gare de Crawford est à voir (entrée du sentier).

A great easy hike that has one of the best views in the Whites. Took 30 minutes on the dot to reach the summit, but that is moving at a fast pace.

Great trail w great views. There are 2 stream crossings that require a little balance to cross without getting wet but very manageable. Microspikes and water resistant boots still recommended but not absolutely necessary.
