Scudder Trail is a 3.6 mile out and back trail located near Gorham, New Hampshire that features a great forest setting. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking, trail running, and nature trips.
This was a really easy trail, starting off as an old logging road. It was a short mile and a half to the first set of ledges with a beautiful view of the Androscoggin valley below. It wasn't very far before we came to another set of ledges. We continued on following the orange blazed trail to yet another set of ledges with even greater views of the Presidentials, Mt Moriah, and Shelburne village. We continued our trek on this fairly easy trail, slippery at times due to dry fallen leaves on the incline, to the view less wooded summit of Mt Ingalls marked well with a wooden sign at 2242 feet. We went probably one tenth of a mile further past the summit to a tiny little pond, which was completely frozen over as it was late November. It was a great hike, 5.6 miles round trip, following the same trail back.
