Drake's Brook/Sandwich Mountain Trails/Jennings Peak
First we stopped at Ski Fanatics in Campton and I bought a hiking stick (Whistle Creek). That was much more helpful on the trails than my trekking pole. It is nice and sturdy and helped a great deal on both the uphill and downhill terrain.
According to the trail map, the Drake's Brook trail to the connection with the Sandwich Mountain trail is 3.2 miles, another .2 miles to Jennings Peak. The downhill is marked on the sign as 2.5 miles going from the connection back down through Noon Peak and to the parking lot. Personally, I don't believe the signage either. This was our longest hike ever and I'm glad it wasn't as hot and humid as the last two weekends.
I put more pictures up on Facebook, just a few here.
