Mount Osceola, White Mountains

May 25, 2012
Distance: 5.8 miles
Time: 5 hours 5 minutes
Map: AMC White Mountains Trail Map Set
Parking: Large dirt parking lot on Tripoli Road
Restrooms: 2 Porta a potties at parking lot
Pre hike breakfast: Frontside Grind - Hippy bagels are awesome, as is their coffee
Post hike dinner: Flatbread Company, North Conway - Great pizza!
Directions: The 4000-Footers of the White Mountains
We took the Mount Osceola trail from Tripoli Road to the summit.

This is considered a moderate hike.

We had no views because it was a rainy day. The ledge at the summit was foggy - we couldn't even see how far down the drop was from the ledge. I thought the trail itself was very pretty.

Trailhead - my GPS tracked this as only 5.8 miles. Since it was a rainy day, we decided not to continue on to Osceola East Peak
We couldn't see a thing in the distance. It was a very foggy hike.
Soggy summit photo. We were all wet & muddy, and couldn't see a thing from the summit. We were on a ledge, but couldn't even see how far down it went.
Dinner at the Flatbread Company - loved this place! We got a table next to the stone oven, which was great after being wet all day. This place has vegan organic pizza. The pizza cooker really puts on a show!

Year to date miles: 162.4
