Ascent Trip Report

A difficult time finding a trail head into woods (missed Brown Rd entrance off Adams Rd, the northern entrance to snowmobile trail), homes about and posted lands, fresh logging roads into woods is land for sale, so once reaching a well used woods road (snowmobile trail) alongside summit doggedly followed it south to its junction with Center Road (a fork appears to join to Rte 116 as well) where trail exited alongside a private home's property. This hike was another bushwack into & thru thick briars to a wooded summit.
