Ascent Trip Report

A warm up hike for Katahdin the next day which turned out to be a pretty strenuous hike. This was my first hike with a gps (Garmin 62stc). The gps tracked the hike as 11.2 miles long with 10,800 ft of elevation change. The trail was covered in the roots & rocks causing a great deal of foot & calf fatigue. It was a beautiful clear day, the summit had great views.
