On Friday under partly sunny skies we climbed Kearsarge North off Hurricane Mountain Road in Jackson, NH. Although a popular hike, only a handful of other hiking parties were on the trail Friday afternoon. The 3,268' summit offers 360 degree views, considered one of the best in the White Mountains.
A fire tower still stands on the summit, although it is now used only as a viewing platform by hikers. The Forest Service recently replaced some of the wooden support posts and beams.
