Ascent Trip ReportFINALLLLLLLLLLLLLLY the LAST 4,000 Footer, they were not kidding about this one being a hard one. The fastest trail was 18.2 miles, i finally convinced my three cousins to come with me and share the moment. We go a late start due to making a wrong turn in glen NH, haha. We finally made our way to the mountain and set foot on the trek that i have been waiting for for 4 years! we made out way to the ranger station in hopes to find the best route up the mountain, they suggested the goat path. You follow the Lincoln woods trail to the black pond trail, yu go to the end of the pond and there will be a small path on the left and supposedly it brings you out the connecter trail. we took their word and we ended up getting terribly lost, we finally found the trail again after 2 hours of traveling threw the brush. We made a long trek up the Lincoln brook trail, the pack i was carrying was far too heavy to continue, we past a campsite where we were going to stay the night so we ditched the pack and kept on trucking. We ran into a couple people and we thought we were close, they said we had another mile til we hit the carrain. we booked it up the mountain. we finally got to the incline section man it was a killer you go from 2,500 to 4,05 in 1.1 mile, its crazy it was what some people call a avalanche trail. we got half way up the steep section and it starts raining, there was high chances of rain and lightning that day, we proceeded and made it to the top, we didn't even get a picture it was so bad. Of all the years of hiking i have only experienced weather like that twice since I've been hiking. we made it safety back to our packs and pitched a tent. We woke up the next morning on a deadline to be back at the house by 5 Pm for my cousins first driving lesson. we made it back to the car in pretty slow time, we made it out and got the picture and we got back to the house at 4:59 PM talk about perfect! I HAVE DONE IT!!!! after 4 years Ive done it! Ive completed the 4,000 footers! I Will continue my next adventure with Maine to complete my new England goal!
