Ascent Trip Report

this was the trip I've been looking for, for two years.... Finally a chance to get the Sandwich Dome done, the tallest Non 4,000 footer in New England. Sam and I went up the Drakes Brook trail over to Jennings Peak, over to the Sandwich Dome, from there we descended to Noon's Peak and back down Sandwich Mountain trail to the car. Overall, 9+ miles and snowfall from the summit. Finally glad to get it done, maybe sometime I'll be able to do it again. Jennings: perfect hike, best way up, Drakes brook trail its a river hike 3.2 miles of easy incline which gradual incline near the junction of Jennings peak. Great outlooks and great views. Sandwich Dome: TOTALLY WORTH IT! just do it! 5 ways up.... figure it out! (not to mention good views of Washington on a clear day :) Noon's: good peak, great outlook, very challenging up/down very steep, makes a good route down off the loop, totally worth it, not super maintained but a good short very steep hike for great views! overall killin it day, till next time :)
