This was our first trip to cardigan, and an absolute pleasure. The accomodations (private room, queen bed) were wonderful, and all the staff were delightful and very helpful. For our first hike of the season we hiked manning to firescrew and cardigan and then continued on to south peak and orange peak. The next day we hiked clark -cardigan-firescrew-manning.
Caridgan lodge is a wonderful retreat for a relaxing weekend, and the sheer granite slabs on the top of cardigan mountain are a wonderful change from the rubble on the top of nearby peaks such as monadnock.
