Mount Tecumseh Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Anyone who has watched The Sound of Music retains visions of the ecstatic Von Trapp family cavorting about luxuriant alpine meadows, regaling the peaks with their joyous songs. A little patience on this hike rewards hikers with a chance to duplicate these happy scenes on the open ski slopes of Waterville Valley.

Each summer, vast acres of grass and wildflowers carpet the mountainside, offering a continuous panorama of Mount Tripyramid and the Osceola peaks across the resort-speckled valley. Allow your mind to edit out the chairlifts. Singing is purely optional. Special attractions: Wildflowers, sunshine, and spectacular views from meadows on mountain slopes."

The hike was pretty easy. Two streams at the beginning and then some elevation followed by gradual elevation then repeat. Trail is pretty flat vs being all rock. It does get rockier closer to the top but nothing bad. Summit itself was nothing spectacular especially when rainy and foggy. No problem for dogs as well. Wyler managed it without incident. If doing this hike for view do it during the sunny days. If just want to do an easy hike or just to knock off the smallest of the 4ks then rain or sun. Took about 2 hrs top to bottom. Longer if choose to do Sosman trail from top.

Pretty easy hike. Not much of a view. A lot of bugs at the top. If you're doing the NH 4Ks you've got to do it, but I would recommend Osceola if you're just looking for a nice hike and a good view.
