My wife and I plan to hike Mount Washington from the west side this coming August 23rd. I found it to be a little difficult to get an accurate and detailed trail map. The online topo maps are a little tough for me to read accurately. I've been told that the Jewell Trail starting from the Cog Railway parking lot is the most gradual ascent. I'm 59 and in fairly decent shape and have been training a bit. I suppose what I'm asking for is advice and any general info you might have to share with us. We're a little bit nervous.
Does anybody have a good online map of the Jewell Trail ascent??
How long do you will it take us (ballpark) to do the hike if the weather allows.
We are only hiking up and not going both ways.
