Ascent of Sandwich Mountain on 2016-08-14
|Others in Party:||Paula Petschek|
|Date:||Sunday, August 14, 2016|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-New Hampshire|
| Elevation:||3960 ft / 1207 m|
Ascent Trip ReportNot the best view, but one of the quietest trips we have taken. The lack of a view didn't really affect us since it was so cloudy/foggy we couldn't see anything.
Went up the Sandwich Mountain Trail over Noon Peak, took a quick trip up/out to Jennings Peak and then on to Sandwich Mountain. Down Drakes Brook Trail.
You will have to cross a stream on both routes. The one on SMT was more exciting than the one on DBT, but this has been a pretty dry year, and it would have been quite exciting in a wetter year (it had rained the day before our trip).
