All - I'm a new visitor to the site and the forums and am getting lots of helpful tips, thank you.
My son (17) and I will be hiking in NH the week of July 3rd. We have hit a dozen of Vermont's finest but this is our first time we've planned a visit to Mt Washington.
Anyway, I like to have one foot on the ground at all times - I'm a hiker, not a climber. And I love the views from secure vantagepoints and at the top, but don't want to walk along a narrow ledge to get there.
My question(s) - are there trails to the Mt Washington summit which require climbing - or ledge walking - and might try to avoid?
Or, is there a specific trail which at least minimizes exposure to these, um, phobias?
Thanks for any advice!
