Overview

This hike maybe low miles but it is steep giving it a moderate rating. Half way up the trail connects to a ski trail with great views. Before the summit there is a nice little loop. It is recommended to hike the loop clockwise. The summit has great views of the Tripyramids and Osceolas.

On the way down if you want to check out the top of the Waterville Valley ski resort an out and back can be down via the Sossman Trail.

Winter hiking info. See getting started for parking. This is a heavily used trail in the winter due to is low miles and the fact the other trailhead is not assessable due to a road closure. At this time Waterville valley doesn't allow any up hill access or tickets.

This is a Moderate out and back trail to Mount Tecumseh in White Mountain National Forest.

Getting Started

Parking is at the Waterville Valley ski resort. During ski season this lot fills up fast on the weekends but during the summer you shouldn't have any problems finding a spot

    Very easy hike in the winter on the right day! Snow cover makes the ascent a breeze with micro spikes

    Still new to snowshoeing this was my 2nd time out but it was a nice hike. Starts out easy and you even get background music from the ski slopes. The climb gets pretty steep after the side trail that gives you a view of the ski trails. From here on up it’s kinda boring and straight for awhile. Once I was near the top it got interesting the wind picked up and it was tough following the trail. It was snowing out so there were no views this day. Not a bad quick hike.

    Hiked this trail during the middle of September and leaves have not started to turn. The trail only has two view points: one midway that is on one of the Waterville Ski Area ski trails and the other is at the summit. The midway viewpoint is more open. The viewpoint at the summit is tiny, and given the popularity of the trail, it was crowded at the top. At neither viewpoint is there a 360 degree view. The trail itself is well maintained, with steps in place even near the summit.
