“Take this steep, short trail to experience great views of Franconia Notch.”— David Smith
After much exertion, the trail reaches the junction with Mount Pemigewasset Trail, which you'll need to follow to reach the summit of Mount Pemigewasset/Indian Head. The trail comes to an open view and skirts around the ledges to the summit. This area can be dangerous when ice is present, so it's a good idea to bring traction aids if you're attempting this trail in the winter.
If you take Mount Pemigewasset Trail on the way back down from the junction, it will bring you out to the trails at the Flume.
