Ascent Trip Report

3 of my girlfriends wanted to come to the Adirondacks with me to hike, but they were interested in some of the smaller peaks. I did some research and found Mount Van Hoevenburg and Mount Jo. On Saturday morning after breakfast, we headed towards the Adirondack Loj to begin our adventure. It was a partly cloudy day but the trail was fairly dry. It started out with a nice walk through the woods. We reached a pond and found a ton of raspberry bushes along the way!!! We began our ascent and found the first false summit. We continued and found the true summit. The path continued but we didn't know where, later we discovered that you could reach the bobsleds on the other side. After a snack and a few pix we descended and headed on our way. Overall a very nice, fairly easy hike.
