Ascent Trip Report

This trip included 4 peaks of interest: Noon Peak, Jennings Peak, Sandwich Mountain (Sandwich Dome) and the Sandwich Mountain-Carroll County High Point.

Started a little late at 10:30 or so. Trailhead was full at the Sandwich Mountain / Drake's Brook trailhead. Parked on 49. Hike up was pretty constant climbing up to Noon Peak and then to Jennings Peak spur trail junction. After visiting Jennings Peak, returned to the trail and reach the summit of Sandwich Mountain. I did some bushwacking to try to find the county high point, but basically covered everywhere my two GPSs were saying was the location based on the coordinates from PeakBagger. Returned to the Jennings Peak spur trail junction and headed west for a bit before taking Drake's Brook Trail back to the car.

Some black flies on the summits and Drake's Brook, but very mild. Trail was pretty from several days of raining especially roots and rocks. The reportedly preferred route is counter clockwise as I did it. But it seemed like it could be done either way with not too much difference. Overall a great hike.
