Nothing like pushing ourselves to the max for our first day out of the season. We started the day with the Osceolas and then hit Tecumseh from Tripoli Road. Endless hike up Tecumseh. Just enough of a grade to tell we were going up and just enough to be mildly annoying. Ha ha. When we reached the knob before the summit we thought we were done. Then we kept going and saw the trail head up fairly steeply with a lot of snow and ice. We descended via the ski trails, which was a pain, but we needed to get down faster than dealing with the snow and ice on the trail. My boyfriend and I swear that we'll never summit it again now that it's off of our NE4000 list. The elevation is deceiving.

My dad and I missed the river crossing and had to hike up one of the closed ski trails, we eventually got back on the tecumseh trail. There is a good view on the Sosman Trail heading over to the top of the ski hill.

From the trail description on my personal website:

An uncomplicated ascent of a 4003-footer. Though the summit just reaches treeline in the most technical sense, occasional gaps afford good views. Also, a side trail to the top of the nearby ski trails provides open panoramas.

...

The trail, rising fairly directly from the trailhead to the summit, is as wide as the yellow brick road. So despite a near-total absence of blazes (I counted six, all on the lower half of the mountain), it's impossible to get lost. The slope is significant and the trail is mostly rough and boulder-strewn, but there is nothing that requires any particular training or equipment. There are a couple of stream crossings, but they are not at all tricky.

Waterville Valley Parking Lot to the summit and back. A good day hike, very packed trail - no snowshoes needed. Though there were certainly parts of the trail that crampons would be a help. We wished we had a sled on the way down.

Mid-40s and overcast, but dead calm. Icy on top, crampons helpful. This would be a nice family hike in season--easy climb, but not much on the views.
