Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: There is one legit water crossing (Ellis River) at the very beginning. I was able to rock hop the first time and just barely made it. Coming back, I was not so lucky - good thing I brought extra socks with me. I think you can avoid the water crossing if you park at Pinkham Notch & take the Lost Pond Trail connector.

Bugs
Bugs: They were a nuisance for pretty much the whole day. But the good news is there should be less of them now. I must have swatted, swallowed, or snorted about three dozen. You're welcome.

Comments
Comments: Awesome views of the Presidential Range from multiple vantage points. I have to admit, this trail was harder than I expected. Don't let the short mileage fool you. Its a very rocky trail with quite a few steep sections. Parts of it were pretty wet too. I normally would hike an 8-mile 4000'er in about 4 hours. This took me almost 7 hours. Just a heads up.
