Ascent Trip Report

I lost the E Trail along the way up, after finally reaching Skye Peak from a herd path behind the lift, my hike went on without mishap and a bit of good luck in reaching across the ridge, finding a herd path from the Appalachian Trail (AT) leading across to Snowdon Peak and after a longer AT bushwhack, a clubhouse summit at Rams Head with a fir / spruce constructed teeppee and ladder to a viewing station climbing above the summit trees with views to Killington Peak and Killington Lodge below, making my return by way of the G Trail.
