Ascent Trip Report

We were looking for a relaxing day and we really wanted to visit one of our favorite places in the ADKs (the Wilmington area) so we decided a short hike up Poke followed by a jump in the flume and a bite at A&W in Wilmington would be fun. The hike is a short 1.2 miles with about 1250' of gain to the 2180' summit and has excellent views from the top as well as the fire tower. It was very humid and took us about an hour to get up with the scenic stops along the way and about 30 minutes to descend. A very fun hike today :)
