Ascent Trip Report

A short night hike with some friends to see the city lights. We ascended the Summit Trail (much mud and running water) to the Walker Trail. We looked at Manchester with binoculars, then found the remains of an old house. Then went to the summit and circled the highest cell tower to see the old fire tower footings. Finally, we went to the southern viewpoint to see Boston, and descended on the Incline Trail.
