We started from the main trailhead at 116 Poole Rd, Jaffrey, NH. Took the White Dot trail to the peak and then came down on the White Cross. With a lunch stop at the peak, we were out for about 4 hours. The hike up is steep with some scrambling. Even though it’s a relatively short hike, it’s a good challenge and the views are beautiful.
NH State Parks dept are trying to limit the number of people on the trail, so you need reservations. Here’s their site.
