On the day after my 38th birthday I headed to Crawford Notch to get Mount Pierce for my November Grid and do some White Mountains Tracing.
Read after the jump for a summary, photos and stats.
I started and ended this hike from the Crawford parking lot off 302 just beyond AMC Highland. I began by hiking out to 302 and following it to the start of Crawford Path as I had never done the small section between 302 and Crawford Connector. I hiked up Crawford Path to Mizpah Cutoff Trail and took it to Mizpah Spring Hut. After checking out the hut I continued up Webster Cliff Trail to Mount Pierce where I ate a piece of birthday cake before heading back down Crawford Path toward my car. Just after taking Crawford Connector toward my car I hiked the Crawford Cliff Spur to check out the little overlook. I finished the day by hiking back out to my car.
