Starting and finishing in Keene (Rooster Comb Parking Lot) adds additional challenge (maximum ups) and if you time things right, you can finish with a beer at the Ausable Inn (open til 2 a.m. on weekends, sometimes).

We slept in the lot, started out at 5:30 a.m. and got back to the Ausable Inn at 1:30 a.m. the next day. The last 3 miles - and even the entire walk out - was almost a blur. This is a very long day and I can't wait to do it again.
