Tongue Mountain Range Question

My wife and I are going to hike a part of the range this Friday - probably about 4 miles out and 4 back (hopefully a bit more). Would it be better to go from the north trailhead or Clay Meadow? I figure if we start from the north we can get to about 5th peak and back. If we go from Clay Meadow, I figure we can get to about French Point Mountain before retracing our steps. If I am not mistaken, the climb is more gradual from the north. Are the views better from one of these two options? Thanks for any input - we rarely get to hike together so I'd like the best option.

While the climb is more gradual from the north, the views are much nicer in the middle and lower sections of the mountain range. I'd do Clay Meadows .
