Mount Tecumseh - Waterville Valley, NH - 9/23/18

We had a few hours to get out and hike on this day and we were in the area of Waterville Valley.  The Welch - Dickey loop was an option, but weI suspected the trail would be quite crowded.  Making the final cut was Mount Tecumseh from the Mount Tecumseh ski area.

It was another warm day and the weather was nice.  We started out on the trail just after lunch.  Parking was not an issue since the trailhead is at the ski area.  There appeared to be lots of people on the trail sjudging by the number of cars in the lot.

The trail does poke out onto one of the ski trails about halfway to the summit offering some first views.

There were limited views along the way, but the summit did offer some views and a small loop option at the top.  We ate lunch at the top, but Rev was a handful with other dogs in the vicinity, so we didn't stay as long as we had hoped.

I didn't take too many pictures on the hike so only a half dozen pictures were available for this post.
The hike was a moderate trek most of the way with just a couple short steeper sections.
