Being my favorite short hike in all of New Hampshire I have hiked this 9 times for overnights. Sunsets are beautiful. Mt Crawford's summit offers the best views in the White Mountains (for the smallest effort)
My wife and I climbed Mt. Crawford at the end of a wet and overcast week-long summer vacation. Although my wife likes hiking and has climbed some smaller mountains in New York, I knew that an ascent of any of the Presidentials would be too much for her. I was told that Crawford was an easy-moderate hike with nice views... and I was not disappointed. This would be a good beginner mountain... relatively short in distance, moderate grades, but hard enough to know you earned the views.
