Heading up the Red Hill Trail to the Red Hill summit
Route: Red Hill Trail
Despite the overcast skies, I decided to hike Red Hill after work. Upon reaching the trailhead, the clouds moved away, making for a mostly sunny hike.
The trail was well packed from foot traffic, so I hiked with just Stablicers.
The steepest part of the hike was near the beginning - thereafter its an easy to moderate ascent. The woods are filled with small growth, making for somewhat of an ugly hike in the winter - that is, until about halfway up. From there, the lakes and mountains become visible.
The summit fire tower has a closed cab, however there is a nice platform just below it with views of the southern Whites, Mt. Cardigan, Mt. Kearsarge (South), and Belknap Mountain.
