Ascent Trip Report

Hiked 16.35 miles to complete missing pieces for LRCT Patch. Since my missing pieces did not include any peaks (as already previously bagged), but the day was so beautiful anyway, did the 0.3 extra to snag Black Snout in the Fall. Spectacular day. Foliage in peak color. Saw a "bear bum" up a tree along High Ridge Trail. Reached summit on an out and back of Black Snout Trail from Turtleback Mountain trail.

Actual routes taken were Shannon Brook Trail, Pond Trail, Cold Springs Road, Whitten Trail, Settlement Trail, Cold Spring Trail, Faraway Mountain Connector, Faraway Mountain Trail, Oak Ridge Cutoff, High Ridge Trail, Black Snout Trail, (Black Snout Summit), Black Snout Trail, Turtleback Mountain Trail, Shannon Brook Trail. Car was parked at Shannon Brook Trailhead on Rt 171.
