Definitely! And Edmands Path is much more pleasant a hike than going up to Jackson.

As I was climbing up, I was thinking it might be too rough for some! It was nice of the AMC to put all those boulders away for the winter, though. :)

I've actually only descended from Jackson and I've hated it every time. That trail was built to destroy knees. That said, I think I'll be heading up it this weekend with my dad for his 48 list. I imagine it'll be tough, but maybe not as frustrating/painful as descending? I'll hope. But I'll carry a lot of ibuprofen just in case.

I didn't think it was too terrible, just a big contrast from last time I was there. It is a lot of rock hopping though, which makes the short distance a bit more tiring. The descent seemed easy, but we were on a slow pace with kids. :)

When we had 4 of them left; Carrigain, Jefferson, Monroe and Washington (for the dog). Our original plan was to finish on Monroe then continue on over to Washington for Abby the Wonder Mutt to finish and just have people meet us up there. We figured it would be easier for our non hiking friends and family to come celebrate with us. That was the plan, but plans don't always work out that way. We were on vacation in Twin Mountain and were going to hike Jefferson and Carrigain, then next vacation we would finish. The weather was perfect one of those day well to maker a long story short, we scrapped Carrigain and tried to do Monroe, Washington and Jefferson in one day. We were surprised we made it. Of course that meant we could finish the 48 the same week. Unfortunately due to Irene damage Carrigain ended up being 4 miles longer round trip due to the road being closed. It was also too hard to get everyone up to Twin Mountain on short notice in the middle of the week, so we summited alone, which was nice in it's own way too.
