I completed this trail in part of a loop last fall. Started at Pinkham Notch...Took Lionshead trail up Mt.Washington and down Nelson Craig-->Old Jackson Road-->Pinkham Notch. Really enjoyed the challenge of the granite scrabble...A little steep at parts, but also some nice open meandering sections...Really beautiful route in foliage season (& good weather!)
