Jeff , bill trip up carrigain, 26 aug 2006, 10 miles round trip. Long slog, this would be very hard in the winter.



Mount Carrigain

The standard route is by the Signal Ridge trail (rt: 10 miles, 3,250 feet, 6:40). In addition to the views from the observation tower at the summit (amongst the finest in the Whites) there are excellent views along the ridge.
