Ascent Trip Report

Me and Ash. Parked where the 1-lane road dead ended, which was a tiny pulloff at a T-intersection with a road used for the pipeline. We followed the mildly broken 4WD road trail until it came to a gate on the right. We took that right and hiked past the gate toward the mountain. The trail was unbroken. The snow was up to my hips even with snowshoes. Ash's paws froze over quickly with the subzero temps and high snow. We turned around about a mile into the hike. We will return in the spring when most of the snow has melted. Great views through the trees from almost all directions of the Green Mountains and the Northfield Mountains.
