Ascent Trip Report

Headed over to Sunapee after visiting the breezy White Ledge. I remembered the 250 ft. drop on the way, but didn't remember that almost all the elevation gain to the summit was on a steep service road. Tough walking at times, but we got to the summit, which was far less crowded than the last time I was there (probably 'cause the chairlift wasn't running). Only hikers and ski area employees. Ate lunch on the lodge deck then headed back to the Mountain Rd. trailhead.
