Ascent Trip Report

I started across a dusting of snow (this before tomorrow's big storm) with a wac east from the McLennan Reservation Loop Trail up to the Titys grave site at the summit and over east back down to the Loop, from there reaching to a junction with an old woods road; for the rest of this hike, I followed the road uphill to start a bushwhack southeast thru mostly open woods and road relics along an open ridge of views west before turning north to Tritop's North Peak going on past Middle Tritop dropping back to the ridge finding there a new Cabin with Vista and a Blue Trail which led southeast then by short detour to Tritop Mtn (Trail went on southeast), back at the Cabin followed the now blazed Red Trail northwest till it turned east back up to Middle Tritop, backtracking down to easier terrain bushwhacked slabbing downhill back to the woods road and Reservation finishing at the Loop back to trail head.
