Ascent Trip Report

Hiked Hogback Mountain and Mount Olga with Dan and Sammy. We started at the gate of the Molly Stark State Park on VT-9, went up the Mt. Olga Trail (first one you come to on the road). We hiked up to the fire tower and met another couple that came up the other side. We didn't know about the parking area at Hogback Mountain. We decided to check it out and descended the Tower Trail to the Bishop Trail. Dan used to ski here as a kid and hiking here brought back some old memories. We saw the lower lodge, now abandoned. We hiked up past it to the gift shop that sits atop Hogback Mountain. We then made a loop and went back up the Tower Trail to the Mount Olga fire tower. We made a loop out of Mount Olga, too, and went down the other Mt. Olga Trail that connects to the Wilmington Trail (appears to be a snowmobile trail). We hiked up the Wilmington Trail for a little bit, but turned around and headed back to the car.
