We hope to enjoy fantastic views from Mt. Osceola, but will need to earn them with a steep climb up East Osceola first. We will ascent the peaks from the Kancamagus via the Greeley Pond Trail and Mt. Osceola Trail, for a round trip of 7.6 miles with 3100 feel elevation gain. After an easy 1.3 mile approach along the Greeley Pond Trail, we'll climb steeply to East Osceola, taking our time as we go., and then follow the ridge to Mt. Osceola.before returning the way we came, As a reward for making the slow climb up, you can enjoy glissading on the way down.
Stephen loves the outdoors, particularly in winter. He started hiking and backpacking as a teen and has not stopped since. He has hiked the NH 4000 footers several times in all seasons, and thru-hiked the AT in 2016. Stephen has led trips for the AMC for many years. He prefers backpacks (multi-day when his schedule allows), and hikes at a relaxed pace.
