Ascent Trip Report

I covered more ground than needed here, the Mt Easter Rd is driveable out to the Appalachian Trail (AT) while Mt Easter Rd seems to actually reach up to the summit without any need to bushwhack the 100 yards from the AT while Pine Swamp Hill (another 100 yard bushwhack) is a quick reach from West Cornwall Rd, otherwise managed to explore trails, Pine Swamp and meet thru-hikers at the Pine Swamp Creek Shelter.
