Comments
Comments: As noted in the White Mountain Guide, the Wildcat Ridge Trail requires more effort than one might think from looking at a map. Lots of ups and downs with some rough footing in places. The ridge does provide the best views of Mt Washington's eastern ravines. Still snow in the upper lip of Tuckerman Ravine, at the head of Raymond Cataract, and the eastern slope above the Alpine Garden.
Saw some AT thru hikers (both northbound and southbound). Many local hikers. Nineteen Mile Brook was running strong from the recent rains (trail does not cross this brook).
