There's also a picnic table at the top of the trail so bringing a picnic lunch or just some snacks so you have an excuse to linger for awhile. It's also a great landmark to know you are there.
|What a view from the picnic table, could have stayed here all day!|
Being this is also September which is "hawk migration" time of year, we spotted three hawks circling overhead who were certainly starting to make their way down South for the winter. We have heard Crotched Mountain is a great place from which to spot hawks and today did not disappoint!

This could quickly become one of our favorite hikes in the area. When you stay with us, ask for details on how to find this great hike and copies of the trail map!
|The hike back down...really great hike and sad to leave|
