| Location:||USA-New Hampshire|
| Elevation:||1413 ft / 430 m|
Ascent Trip ReportAfter reaching the summit of McCoy Mtn continued south bound on Old Mountain Rd. At snowmobile trail headed southeast towards Fort Mtn. At a rock wall I headed south up to the ridge line and continued along the ridge to the NW false summit (opening in trees). From there an apparent trail led to the road and followed that to the summit. Very windy on summit today - extremely warm today with 63F down lower. Heading off summit on the road until the first big U turn near top, then bushwhacked down the north side of mountain following the steepest contour...it eventually became a small stream. This crossed the ATV trail and I followed that back to Old Mountain Rd and then north to my vehicle.
