One of the easier New Hampshire 4k Mountains. In and out hike through the Tecumseh Trail that traverses through a couple of brooks and fairly dense forest.

Starts off easy but gains momentum. It was my first 4000 footer. I found some parts were challenging, but very doable.

This is a less-traveled path up Tecumseh and the quietness is wonderful. Not much in the way of views on the way up; the description is correct: dense woods, especially in the second half of the hike. Also, the only water is at the very beginning of the hike; the trail does not follow the brook. For those hiking in a group, the trail is often narrow enough that single-file required. Finally, didn't see the bear itself, but saw its recent scat :)

Word of the day: Steep. Tecumseh isn't a terribly difficult trail, but man, it is steep. Because of that, it could get a little slow at times. 3.1 miles to the top, about an hour and 30 minutes each way. Trail is pretty narrow at times, but actually really pretty, with some lovely, hobbit-y moments.

Honestly, it's like Tecumseh took umbrage to being called The Smallest of the 4,000's, and decided to just be ornery. So, isn't going on my list of favourites, but it's still a nice mountain, perfect for a solitary hike.

Trail sign at trail head and peak says 3.1 for this trail making it 6.2mi out and back... Not 5.4mi like Nat Geo proposes on their maps. This took me 3 hours round trip. 1.75hrs up and 1.25hr down.
