Comments
Comments: Easy hike up to Osceola. Much of the ledge areas along the trail were wet however the surfaces were not slippery. Lots of large puddles near the top of Osceola as the ledges prevented the water from percolating. Can get by along the edges. Be sure to visit the north outlook on a short side path beginning near a pylon just to the west of the expansive ledge area on Osceola. Could easily ascend the chimney even though there was some wetness on the rocks. Used the bypass route on descent rather than going down the chimney. There was lots of red foliage looking down to the Kancamagus Highway around the hairpin curve.
