Table Mountain - Hiking

Table Mountain (2,675ft)
Trail: Attitash Trail
Elevation Gain: 1,350ft
Distance: 3.8miles roundtrip
Duration: 3.5 hours
Difficulty: Easy

Table Mountain is located off of the Kancamagus Highway and a few of us from the New England Over 50 Hiking Meetup Group got together for this hike. The Attitash trailhead is off of Bear Notch Road and is easy to miss, for me anyways! This is a very pretty trail, not to mention the elevation is moderate with a couple of lookout ledges. Near the top there are several slabby portions on the trail. There are no trails to the actual summit which is wooded. So we spent an hour at the upper most ledge relaxing, eating our lunches and taking in the views. The weather was fantastic, sunny and warm with cool breezes!
