    A perfectly, somewhat challenging hike for two older, out of shape people. Just enough elevation to be a workout. A fair amount of rocks adds to the challenge, but not Mt. Washington rocky. The view of Crawford Notch and to the SE is wonderful. A great value for the effort. Well maintained trail and no trouble finding our way.
