Highlights

  • A short trail up from the Galehead Hut leads you to this viewless, somewhat joyless summit
  • Worth stopping by the Galehead Hut, the most remote hut in the AMC's hut system. BYO lunch, although baked goods and soup are available during the day
  • Combine with a steep climb up to South Twin for exceptional views into the Pemigewasset Wilderness
