A great hike when time is limited. The views from both peaks are impressive, encompassing Mt. Washington, the southern Presidential Range peaks, and Crawford's Notch. The climb is steep in places and strewn with granite but it is in New Hampshire after all. There is a pleasant waterfall with an enticing pool of water at it's base along the Webster Trail. There is a $5 fee for day use.Show more
