HIGHLIGHTS: Mackie and I hiked this short section just north of Pinkham Notch with some help from the Wildcat Mountain gondola. We rode it to Wildcat Peak D at 4,063 feet and checked out the views from a wooded platform at the summit. There are five peaks lettered A-E along Wildcat, and the mountain serves as a ski area in the winter time. A number of ski trails descend from the summit, but we followed the Appalachian Trail back to the base of the mountain on N.H. 16 near Pinkham Notch. It’s a short three mile hike on the A.T.
