Ascent Trip Report

A road walk with a short bushwack ..... .6 miles, 25 minutes RT.

From Stowe (Jct #100/108) I drove northwest on #108 for 1 mile to a left turn on Birch Hill Road, the winds .7 miles southwest to its end .... a private driveway with a house is on the right, straight ahead is a gated (open) dirt road that continues into a future housing development. I parked here.

I walked the dirt road south 500 yards, then right 50 yards inside the woods to the obvious wooded HP at GPS 44.46460,-72.70412.
A new house is presently under construction 100 yards further up the road, once the area is developed this HP may not be accessible.

Another of those summits that offers nothing, "for Peakbaggers only".

This was the last hike of the day, tonight I will overnight at the LT TH Parking in Smugglers Notch (#108).
