eric-grizNot sure  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2001


Not sure which route I followed, but it was the summer of 2001 when I was working as an Appalachian Trail caretaker in the Bigelows of Maine and I became obsessed with summiting the 4,000 foot peaks of New England. My copy of the White Mountain Guide states that I made the ascent on October 3 of that year.

sredfernnice late fall hike of both peaks  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 2, 2014


I did a morning out and back from the Kanc over East Osceola on a day that I thought would just be rain, but it was actually no rain and just snow in the summits. There was only about 2" of snow but the rain from the day before had frozen overnight and made the rocks quite treacherous so I ended up putting on my Microspikes about 2/3 of the way up East and it made all the difference. The open slide area between the knob and the summit was hard with the ice and light snow but the rest was just a one foot over the other slog up the mountain. The Chimney was fun but challenging with ice and snow on it, and even more challenging descending it on the way back. There are some fun chimneys like that in the Catskills that really add a change of pace to a hike! No views at all I was totally in the clouds with 23MPH winds picking up all the light snow and blowing it around.

Hiked with East Osceola. I liked the chimney on the side of it.

Loved this hike. Amazing views at the summit. This, along with East Osceola, had a bit of everything I enjoy about hiking.

Nice trails with lots of stretches with no big rocks to step on and over, my feet loved this one. Nice views, but very buggy.

Quick climb from the gap. Trail was nice and easy, and great views from above the cliffs. Lots of bugs though.

First 4000'er after moving back to New England and a good reminder of how rugged trails are here. Hiked it with my dog. Cloudy so no views, except for 5 minute window to the N.

Nice easy climb up from Tripoli Road. Views on top were spectacular as advertised, and we got a little bonus too- a Harvard a capella group came up the mountain and gave a performance on top! Definitely an experience I will not forget.

When you've only got one day, you've got to put up with whatever the weather is (assuming it's not life-threatening!). I hiked and got rained on for no view whatever. It was still good.

When the family asked what I wanted for Father's Day I said a Family Father's Day Four Thousand Footer...with no complaints. At least I got the 4000 footer part 8-)

The more scrambling the better, especially when there are no views.

With Flanders via the Mt. Osceola Trail. Rained off and on. Absolutely no views from the summit. I think the true summit is a bit before the "viewpoint" though. We stepped on everything we could find that we thought could be the summit. Then on to East Osceola and back.

ShawnotronThe Back Way  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 26, 2008
I climbed East Osceola and Osceola today by the back way. It was a very difficult hike right after a large amount of rain and only after getting home and checking this site do I realize that the other approach is much easier. Oh well, at least it was great exercise.
