Ascent Trip Report

6.65 mile trail/road/bushwhack run to Brandy Brow, Corliss (from 2 directions), and Sweet Hills. For Brandy Brow, I started at the end of Brandy Brow Road of of Newton Road and ran the logging roads in the Haverhill owned forest land. There was a lot of frozen water over the logging roads, so best done in winter or during dry season. In wet season, you'd end up bushwhacking around the flooded areas. There was one stream where I had to bushwhack upstream a bit to find a spot narrow enough to jump across. Once I thought Brandy Brow hill was in sight, I bushwhacked up to the top. It turned out to be the smaller of the two peaks, but there is an ATV trail at the top of the first peak which goes up to the second. Coming down, I followed the ATV trail back over the smaller peak and it came back down to the logging road so it can be done without bushwhacking at all. There is a nice stone marker at the corner of Haverhill, Merrimack, Plaistow, and Newton just below the top.
