Kearsarge probably has the best summit view of any mountain I've hiked. It also has a watch tower at the summit, and two different picnic areas along the way.
The hike has two options:
1. Hike 5+ miles using Lincoln trail to reach the summit
2. Pay a $4 entrance fee, drive your car up the first 5mi, and then take one of the shorter trails to the summit, ranging from 0.5mi to 1.7mi
Though the hike has the potential to be really short, I would not recommend this hike for young children as the wind levels are high at the summit and I don't think young kids could keep themselves sturdy well enough. #hiking #outdoor #mountains
