Did this yesterday it was a beautiful day and it be moms day saw several moms and daughters hiking it! A number of women trail runners as well. You go girls!
Wanted to visit Camp Penacook as this is a wilderness leanto and like many of its kind wont be around for ever. It’s an longer then expected difficult hike up and away from the piper so I opted to bushwack to the main trail doable lots of cool ledges but not recommended! I descended traditionally so I could check out the whole trail. Beautiful.

Hiked this trail for the first time yesterday. Great weather super windy and cold at the summit but was prepared for it. Was hoping the summit wouldn’t be as crowded as it usually was but was surprised how many were up there.

Brought my spikes just in case, wasn’t sure since it was my first hike in the whites this year but didn’t use them once.

Good to great "day hike" but, don't try it after Thanksgiving. Quite a bit of ice above tree line.

Beautiful view from the peak, but the climb up is challenging in places.
