In response to SlimPickensIII's comment:
You should take the Waterville exit one of these days. There are some really nice hikes in and around the Valley and along the Mad, and Pemigwasset Rivers. The view of the White and Green Mountains from the Mount Osceola trail (peak) is spectacular.
Yup, we're looking at Osceola and East Osceola on one hike, late next spring or early summer. I hear the east peak doesn't have much of a view, but it's on 'the list' so we gotta do it too. Just a matter of approaching from the Kancamangus or the Waterville Valley side. Sounds like we need to visit Ashland and checkout some of those places, so the WV is the early favorite!
The views from East Osceola are wooded, but not all that bad with some nice views of North Peak and Waterville Valley from the summit. It's a fun climb, but it can be really muddy depending on when you go, and it's really steep in some places The Greely Pond trail off the Kangamangus to the Mt. Osceola trail is the way to go imo. It's a nice, long hike and has some of the best views of the Sandwich and Tripyramids along the way. Enjoy!
There is a good hiking and climbing forum called Views From The Top Not sure if you are a member, if not you should check it out. Some really great folks are members and there is just about anything and everything here regarding back-country and regular skiing, hiking, food camping, weather, and trail conditions, photos, group hikes etc.. I use this forum all the time to stay connected, and when planning any kind excusion in the Northeast. A great resource and a lot of fun.
Sorry, now back to the music....
