Comments
Comments: The Webster Cliff and Crawford Path is an interesting alternative route to Mt Eisenhower. It is long with rough footing in places. The ledges on Mt Webster could be difficult if wet. The Webster Cliff trail has many outlooks in to Crawford Notch. From Mt Webster to Mt Eisenhower there are good views of Mt Washington and the southern Presidentials. Rhodora in bloom on the ledges of Mt Webster. Diapensia, Alpine Azalea, and Lapland Rosebay on Mt Eisenhower. Saw a male Spruce Grouse and Gray Jays.
Met Bill and Diane Schor between Mizpah Hut and Mt Jackson. Met an AT thru hiker form Indiana. Met many other hikers.
