Ascent Trip Report

Our fourth peak of the day was a lot of fun. Our goal was West Stockbridge mountain (1,860). Unlike most approaches we went in from the south near the junction of Averic Rd and Rt 41 at 950'. There was a nice jeep trail that was signed for the watershed area and restricted for hunting. We stayed out of the woods until pretty high up on the ridge. Then it was a bushwhack to the ridge and a hike along the ridge to the summit, we bagged the West Stockbridge/Stockbridge town line marker that was part way along the ridge. On the way back down we stayed to the west of the ridge on a trail then came over the ridge at the very end of the nose. There were some great views from there on the open rock. It was a beautiful day to be out in the woods.
