Comments
Comments: Beautiful trail with looks out of Newfound Lake and Cardigan along the way. Bald Knob and Mt Crosby have great views north: Tenney Mt and Wind Mills (if that’s your thing), Tripyramids, Osceola, Welch Dickey and even a snow capped Mt Washington behind the ridge line. We took Bald Knob Trail up. This is an incredibly well blazed (Orange) trail, which is needed as the path is not always obvious. About 1.5 miles in the trail starts to climb boulderish area’s. Nothing that elevates to the level of scrambling but you are often switchbacking up a boulder or going over rocky area. Hiked along the ridge line, Crosby has 2 great view points, to then head down High PastureTrail before reconnecting with Bald Knob to head out. Snow was sticky, enough ice to warrant, and leaves were slippery under the loose sticky snow.
