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
