Loved this hike! Nice views of the Presidentials at the beginning of hike and again part way up! No view from the peak but DO continue on to the ledges a mile or so from the peak. Wonderful views there on large open ledges toward Pickering, Stanton, Langton, Atatash and many more. Somewhat steep, but Moderate is an apt rating overall. As others have written, the dirt road leading up to the small lot is very narrow and has gullies on both sides. Made it up in a car with no problem, but fortunately met no vehicle on the way. Not sure if two vehicles could squeeze by each other. Parking area is small but it seems this hike is “off the beaten path” enough to attract few hikers. We met only two people during our hike. A “ hidden gem” in my opinion!
