#36, #37 Middle and South Carters

#36, 37 Middle (4610') and South Carter (4430') July 4,2010.  South Imp trail to Carter Moriah trail to Carter Dome trail to 19 mile brook trail (traverse). 

Mileage: 10.8 miles RT

Elevation gain: 3500'

Trailhead: South Imp trail is located on Route 16 several miles north of Pinkham Notch Visitors Center. Heading north, go past Nineteen Mile Brook Trail and you will see a parking area on your right as you round the corner.  (You can walk from one trailhead to the other).
Lesson learned:  It is particularly rewarding when you schedule to meet friends hiking from another direction and you meet exactly when and where you thought you would!
Hiked with Rich and Eileen on this beautiful but hot day. The trail was very moderate and Carter Moriah ridge was beautiful, particularly between Middle and South Carters. 

Rich's 30th NH 4K - Middle Carter is an unexciting peak

Spectacular view of Mt. Washington from the Carter-Moriah trail ridge.
After we summitted Middle Carter we met Norm and Charlotte at South Carter for lunch.  They were hiking 19 Mile Brook trail up to South Carter. Timing was perfect.
