Edward M. on Mount Elmore
Glorious day today for a hike. The view from the top of the fire tower was as good as it gets. The rock ledge near the top proved to be somewhat challenging to get up but it's not a very large section.
Loring S. on Mount Equinox Trail
Awesome hike but it is tough. I brought my three kids and they hated me for a little while afterwards. See my full write up. http://www.eastcoasthiker.com/trails/equinoxmountain
This short hike was certainly a nice follow up to our disastrous attempt to hike Mt. Madison the day before. A short drive up the road to the Nose and then you take the trail that follows the spine of Mt. Mansfield all the way to the Chin. Great views all the way around. You get a great view of Lake Champlain to the west, and can see all the way back the Presidential Range to the east. This is kid friendly also, an easy hike that follows a bedrock trail for the most part. Got to see some fall color which was nice too.
