Comments
Comments: Nice to see lots out enjoying the day; from early teen ski racers to Over 50 group hike. Nice hike for all. We went down Bypass and up Chimney. No problems; just careful hand and foot placement advised. Osceola (by itself) is definitely one of the better NH 4's for an introduction to NH 4's. Little rocky; but no steeps, brook crossings, short mileage etc..
