I was told there would be “limited” views on this hike. Not sure if the person who told me this hiked it blindfolded, because I found this hike to be beautiful. Noon Peak and Jennings Peak where spectacular vistas. The summit of Sandwich Dome had wonderful views of the Sandwich, Presidential, Pemi and Franconia Ranges. There’s a small pill bottle currently serving as the summit canister, which is sitting right on top of the cairn. We took Sandwich Mountain Trail up and Drakes Brook down. I recommend doing it this way since Drakes is more gradual. Drake’s Brook followed a beautiful river most of the way, with only one major crossing. Definitely would do it again.
