Magalloway

STATE: New Hampshire 
DESTINATION: Mt. Magalloway
ELEVATION: 3383 FT
TRAIL: Coot Trail
DISTANCE: 1.4 Miles
ELEVATION GAIN: 813 Ft
HIKING TIME: 30 Minutes
SEASON: Late Summer
DATE: 9/19/09
WEATHER: 60 degrees, sunny

MAP: (Magalloway)
DESCRIPTION:

From Rt 3 take a right onto Magalloway road approximately 8 miles. Follow signs for the firetower lookout. Don't be fooled by the short distance and 800 Ft elevation. The Coot trail ascends 800 Ft in approximately 0.5 miles and is brutally steep. The summit 360 degree views are worth the effort. I highly recommend climbing the tower then continuing North along the ridge visiting several outlooks along the way with spectacular views to the East standing on Grand Canyon like hundred foot drops.
