Ascent Trip Report

Great views all along the way, plenty of elbow room at a sparse summit with a steep climb across to Dorr Mtn while reaching back to Dike Peak by Canon Brook Trail was quite the experience with lots of large stone-work stepping to start while the upper reaches were difficult at times wet ledges to by-pass, finally reaching to the Featherbed (Pond) Trail Jct and relaxed sitting lunch, a quick reach afterward up to Dike Peak was followed by a long downhill walk with ocean views back to the Blackwoods Campground.
