Hi all! Just joined as I'm planning a 3.5-day hike in WMNF in June (which includes SOBO Franconia Ridge from Garfield, then looping up the Franconia Brook trail to Galehead, with some side trips in there), and I want to do a good practice day trip with a full pack. I was just wondering if Pawtuckaway would be good for that (doing both North and South), or if I should look to do more elevation (like Monadnock)?
Relevant info: I've done 4000-footers before but not in a long time, and I'm very-used to carrying 20lbs around for hours on end, so I'm not so much worried about that. My fitness levels are very high, I just want to get used to the way my pack sits, etc.
