Ascent Trip ReportOne of Vermont's 100 highest.
Its a pretty easy hike on the Long Trail South from Rte 73 at the Brandon Gap. Brandon Gap is at 2,200 ft. My trip was on February 12 and despite very little snow at lower elevations there was 5-6 inches of powder on the trail. I skied 3.8 miles on the LT and left my skis and pack for the .25 ascent. It was cold and windy at the peak with lots of blowdowns.
