Why is Mt Tom, and by extension, Field and Willey, so attractive? Well, for starters, the trail is moderate, and there are some good views.
I’ve been trying to play catch-up with video footage I’ve collected on past hikes. The most recent? Mt Cabot, in March of 2019. The fun part of all of this is that I’m re-living past hikes. As I write this, the afternoon’s weather was quite warm and pleasant — the kind where you open the windows and let in some fresh air.
Mt Isolation is tough. The trail itself isn’t hard, per se, but there’s a lot of mileage, and in the warmer months, there’s a few tough water crossings. In the winter, there’s a bushwhack. And did I mention miles? But it’s an amazing summit with stellar views of Mt Washington. It’ll steal your breath away!
