Ascent Trip Report

Took Guinea Pond trail to Mead trail. Fantastic, moderate hike. Guinea Pond trail is flat and comfortable. The mead trail is moderate and has plenty of great trail conditions. Several blow downs require minimum bushwhacking. The view from the top earn the spot on the 52WAV. Overall a really nice easy hike for spectacular views.

RECOMEND APPROPRIATE VEHICLE FOR SANDWICH NOTCH ROAD. From the north, the road is quite bad.
