Along with slowly chipping away at the NH 48 4,000 footers, we are also working on the 52 with a view list. Stinson is one of the mountains on that list.
This is a short hike covering only 4.2 miles RT with 1,425' of elevation gain. As this was our first hike of the year, I expected the elevation would 'feel' more substantive but it didn't. It was a great hike and one worth trying if you have limited time as it is a quick in and out.
Here we are at the summit and I've climbed the steps of the fire tower. I am turning the door knob but it appears to be locked (I guess you had to be there).
The views run nearly 180 degrees.
There is a small loop option that we took on the descent. You can opt to come down the snowmobile trail which we did. It is a bit more open and a bit muddier but still worth doing if for nothing more than the variety.
