Ascent Trip Report

This was the NEHH finish for Dan Mckee and I, and a few friends joined for the celebration.

8:15 - Met "the crowd" at the Nancy Ponds trailhead on Rt 302. (Just south of the Notchland Inn).
8:30 - Depart the parking lot.
?:00 - Arrived at the "waterfall". This was my first time on this trail/peak, and wasn't expecting this. It's a beautiful waterfall.
?:00 - After walking past the ponds, we arrived at the western tip of the ponds where the "bushwhack" (unmaintained trail) heads to the summit to the north.
12:15 - Arrived at the summit of Mt. Nancy. Champagne Celebration!! On a clear day, there is a nice view of the presidentials from here. Today there were low clouds, so we couldn't see any of the summits.
12:30 - Depart the summit after champagne and cookies (thanks Susan).
1:00 - After reaching the ponds, I split off from the group because I had to pick up the pace because I had an evening flight out of Logan.
2:00 - Back at the parking lot - hike complete.
