Summary

We will hike to both Osceola peaks from the Greeley Pond Trail via the Kancamagus.

These are two 4000 footers - East Osceola standing at 4,156 feet and Mount Osceola at 4,340 feet.  

During the hike there are fantastic views of Waterville Valley.  This is an out & back hike (3.8 miles each way).

 Note:  The most challenging part is between the two mountains (it is known as "The Chimney") a rocky steep incline -- but there is a by-pass trail on the side of it to avoid the rocks.

 

Distance :  7.6 Miles

Estimated Elevation Gain:  3100

Estimated Time (with breaks, lunch & posing for pictures):   6.5 hours max
