Via Crawford Path
Autumn is truly one of the best times of year to hike the Presidential Range in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The crowds of tourists and dayhikers has died back, the bugs are finally gone, and temperatures are comfortable- no perfect- for hiking.
The trail up Eisenhower is relatively easy compared to many of our previous hikes. A large portion of the trail is exposed and above treeline- so caution is needed in bad weather.
Eisenhower's summit is raw, large, and exposed with excellent views. Pierce is easy to miss as we just climbed right over it without even noticing until later that a small cairn had marked the top.
