Ascent Trip Report

East Trail to North Trail. Parked at trailhead on Long Pond Road. First 1.6 miles are on old logging roads with very easy grades. Once turning into Willoughby State Forest the trail starts to ascend. After merging with the North Trail, there is about 0.5 miles of pretty steep ascent to the North Overlook. Another 0.3 miles to the viewless summit. Busy afternoon on the summit and at overlooks, but only passed 1 couple mountain biking on the East Trail portion of the hike. Definitely a quieter option than the popular North and South Trails.
