Ascent Trip Report

After summiting Field for the second time we continued down the Avalon Trail, which was somewhat rocky, with an open granite slab about halfway down. After descending for a mile the trail reached the Avalon Spur, which is a short, but steep 100 yard scramble to the summit of Mount Avalon. You may be tired at the end of the day, but Avalon offers great panoramic views of the Presidential Range and Webster Cliffs.

We continued down the Avalon Trail back to the trailhead, reaching the trailhead approximately 7 hours after setting out.
