Sometimes you’re in between booking mileage, and something epic.
You see an easy first couple miles. Then things pitch upward significantly. So what if you add a bitter wind? Can one have fun?
Where to start? A 3 mile hike, on easy grades along logging roads. Great views of the Franconias. Sign me up!
The trio make for an easier trip than most. But that’s not to say that a hike up Tom, Field, and Willey is going to be without substance. There’s a lot to enjoy here, even if the clouds and fog have wiped out the view.
Mt Washington doesn’t give up the goods easily, but if you’re patient, perhaps you’ll get lucky. But be prepared for snowy, whiteout conditions.
