Ascent Trip Report

Did a quick afternoon hike of this small peak. The tower road saw heavy snowmobile use, so I opted for the access trail. It was somewhat broken out, but nothing my snowshoes couldn't handle. Easy grade all the way. There was a decent view from the top, but no major peaks were visible. The way the hill looked with the snow, the fire tower base, the summit and view, and the snowmobile track strongly reminded me of Stinson Mountain in Rumney, as the hike was almost exactly like this, except longer.

Quick sip of water and then I headed back down.
