Up until last week I’d done every other trail up chocurua! Finally did this beautiful trial. It starts off easy and gives you nice winter views and glimpses of the summit. But soon your climbing switch backs and rock steps with easier walking in between the steeps. Then your brought to some open ledges just before the saddle between middle sister and the summit. Loved it. Add in The Penacook Camp shelter its an up hill climb from the main trail, worth seeing but adds a half mile to the trip as you have to climb up the steep trail and back down to the main trail.
