Ascent Trip Report

12:20 - Tried to park at the TH lot, but it was full. So, I had to park out on the road. There was new snow over the past couple of days, so I waited for others to break out the trail (plenty did).
12:30 - Departed the car and headed up the Drake's brook trail which started with very nice groomed x-country skiing trails.
14:15 - Jenning Peak summit. Spent ~15 mins eating, drinking and taking pictures.
14:30 - Departed Jenning peak.
15:00 - Sandwich Mt. summit. A few quick photos, tramped over to the Carroll county high point, then headed back down.
15:25 - Back at Jenning Peak summit. Quick stop this time since it's getting late. Plan is to descend the Sandwich trail instead of Drakes brook to grab Noon Peak.
15:45 - Noon Peak.
16:30 - Back at the car.
