Comments
Comments: When I hiked this route on 12/2/2007, there were views of Paugus, Whiteface and Wonalancet from the summit ledge. They have all grown in, leaving only the "limited but picturesque" [AMC Guide] view of Mt. Chocorua. There has been some logging along the segment of Pasture Path between Tilton Spring and the summit, but the Trail showed no damage. That Spring was crystal clear in 2007 but looked rather skanky today.
