The historical sight is very nice and view of Profile Lake is spectacular. A must for the family if you've never been.

This is a great little hike. Growing up, we would stop here every year while camping in the White Mountains. The last time I was there was in 2009 after The Old Man slipped off the mtn. Plans and constuction was underway to expand the area and a memorial of The Old Man. Even without him there it's still worth the trip.
