Webster-Jackson Trail (Mount Jackson Branch) Professional Review and Guide
"Four distinct destinations allow walks on the Webster-Jackson Trail to be tailored to any hiker. The full circle to the top of Mount Jackson makes for an exacting day, but promises outstanding views of the southern Presidential Peaks. The difficult ascent that ends on the pinnacle of Mount Webster eliminates an hour of hiking, but still fully examines the eastern wall of Crawford Notch. The moderate trip to Bugle Cliff ends with a compromise: the single best look into the notch, but no long-distance White Mountain view. As a final hiking option, the simple walk to Elephant Head offers a quick introduction to nearby Bretton Woods. Special attractions: Elephant Head, Bugle Cliff, and unobstructed views of the Presidential Peaks from Mount Jackson's barren summit."
