Ascent Trip Report

Decided to drive up to do this hike today for my second time. I was excited to hike in the new 12+ inches of snow we got in MA the other night. It appeared that one other person had attempted the hike yesterday but turned around at the power lines. From there it was trudging through shin-knee deep snow all the way to the top. I would’ve continued over to High Ledges but decided I wasn’t up for extra trail breaking, especially since the only track towards it was a singular ski track. But the views from the tower were peak, clear blue skies in all directions. I could see as far as Sunapee, Croydon and Ascutney with crystal clear shots of Stratton and Monadnock.
