Probably the best views of the Presidentials I've seen. We were blessed w/a clear day, too. However (and it's a big however), in retrospect, I would have made this an out and back instead of a loop. Went down the south trail. After it intersects...More

It was a nice hiking trail. There was plenty of wildlife and interesting things to see. The fellow hikers were friendly.

Hiked this many years ago, probably could not make it now. Difficult trail but worth the effort the scene is magnificent.
