Comments
Comments: Absolutely beautiful day for hiking. Tagged both peaks with an 11 mile loop. Saw 5-6 other hikers, and 2 awesome golden retrievers. Nothing particularly noteworthy about the hike...be ready for a lot of bugs, and high temps even at higher elevation. I tore through 2 Nalgenes and had to refill with the Sawyer at a spring near the Passaconaway summit junction.

Ferncroft is easily the most beautiful place I have ever started/finished a trail.
