Description

The Kearsarge Fire Tower at the top of this peak features an incredible 360-degree view of the surrounding lakes, trails, peaks, and towns. It will take the good part of a day to get there by the Kearsarge North Trail, but it's so worth it!

All-Day Hike: The easiest access is by the Mount Kearsarge North Trail.

Such a great, short, steady hike each time. Parked at 3:30, was able to score the place to myself. Cozy even in the 20s overnight. Stay when you can!

Nice trail, so so amazing at the top, be aware navigating on the way up, it can be easy to get a bit lost in the open sections if not looking around.
