This was my last of three peaks; Avalon, Field, and then Tom. Not to much to see at the top, since it was quite foggy and rainy by the time we got there.
Easy trail, great views over the Pemi, and pretty perfect day.
Easy half day or less.
Eighty seven minutes from the parking lot. The snow and ice slowed me a bit but once I passed a duo and a quartet I had the trail to myself for all four mountains for the rest of the day.
Hiked a Willey, Tom, Field, Avalon overnight backpack. Watched the sun set and rise. Perfect weekend.
Climbed Tom as part of a trip through the Willey Range. Started at the highland center, up the Avalon Trail to Field, then out to Willey and Back, then over to Tom. Windy with clouds, so no good views. It started raining heavily on my way down, so poncho and headlamp.
16" of fresh snow and Thanksgiving Day made this hike pretty quiet!
via az trail.
We had a great time. Part of a threesome we did.
It was snowing on the way up, and I had a cold that made me lose my voice. I couldn't call to my dog, who ran ahead to the summit and then went off into the woods. I couldn't find her. I ran down the mountain, and she was in the parking lot of the Highland Center. BAH.
Better views on Field...deceivingly long to this summit. Good views, lots of searching to find the best spot. In 5 years views might be gone due to pines.
With Flanders, up the A-Z Trail on a wonderfully sunny morning. Hit the Tom summit spur, made the summit and took some pictures. Neat viewpoint to the right split of the trail near the summit. Back down and on to Field.
perfect weather, pleasant climb
Really windy at the top, but a great hike. We decided to trow Field and Avalon in after this one.
Climbed as part of the not so big 3. Nice weather made for some solid views back into the Pemi Wilderness.
Enjoyed views of Presidentials from the fir wave area near the summit.
Did this, Field, and Willey in about 6 hours, and we were not moving fast. It's close to the road and a pretty easy hike. The views are OK. I've been saving the "easy" hikes for last on my 4,000 footer quest.
Climbed with Field, Willey and Avalon via the Willey Range Trail from Crawford Notch. A very pleasent hike up. Saw at least a dozen or so toads during the ascent. Good views of the Presidential Range and of the Pemigewasset Wilderness from the blowdown area near the summit.
