Points of Interest

1. Skyline trail junction.

Turn left here to head down to Worcester. You are actually at the highest point that you will be at all day.

2. Hogback View

You'll find yourself on a little rock ledge right off the trail looking at where you will be going just before you drop almost 600 feet.

3. Vista

Just a short trip off the trail, you'll encounter views to the South East.

4. Worcester false summit

Stop here for a different view than you will get on the summit. Worcester is rarely crowded, but if it is, this is a great place to hang out.

5. Worcester summit

Feel free to walk around the rocks on the trail and take in views of the White Mountains on a clear day.
