Route: Table Rock Trail

Trail up from the notch is relentlessly steep (about 600 vertical in .3 mile). Walk out to Table Rock is not recommended for those who have issues with heights - it's bascially a ~5-10 foot wide knife edge with massive drops on either side. Wind gusts from the notch didn't help. Views were spectacular. A shame to see the grand hotel and nearby ski area closed for another winter season.

Directions to trailhead: From Route 16 in Errol, take Route 26 West, over the height of land in Dixville Notch. There will be a pull off on the left side of the road, shortly before the Balsams Entrance on the right. The Table Rock (Climbing) Trail is adjacent to the pull off.
