Loop Hike Over Jackson and Webster

Any 4,000 footer worth doing once is worth doing twice. I was looking for a 4,000 footer with great views to test the patch job I did on one of my winter boots that was splitting at the seam. A loop hike to Mount Jackson over to Mount Webster via the Webster-Jackson and Webster Cliff Trails seemed to be a good choice. The temp was -4 below zero as I departed for the trailhead and the sky was crystal clear, a perfect day for hiking!

Mount Osceola and East Osceola

The weather forecast today called for clearing skies after early morning clouds. So it was a gray, overcast sky on the drive to the trailhead. Today's hike would take me over East Osceola (4,156 ft.) to Mount Osceola (4,340 ft.), two 4,000 footers. My hike would start at the Greeley Ponds Trail off the Kancamagus Highway and continue on to the Mount Osceola Trail.

Mount Carrigain via Signal Ridge Trail

It was a cold Saturday morning as I drove to the trailhead. Clouds were clearing and the wind was calming down. I was on my way to Sawyer River Road for a hike to Mount Carrigain (4,700 ft.) by way of the Signal Ridge Trail.

Hike to Mount Hayes

Looking out the window this morning the sky was dark with foreboding clouds. The weather forecast called for clearing skies so I was taking my time leaving the house hoping for some of that clearing. Today's hike would take me up the Mahoosuc Trail to Mount Hayes.
