Ascent Trip Report

Had a great hike today with Cheryl Ann , Deirdre Johnson & Yvan Guay .Yvan is the trail maintainer for the Percy Loop trail which was part of the Cohos Trail but a new trail has been cut so it is no longer .Day started cold low 40's but still short weather :-) ....
Cheryl Ann wanted to do South Perc as well as North.At 1st I wasn't enthusiastic about it but after hitting the trail which was fun the summit was awesome with great views & we could see out next peak clearly ...Wow those ledges were intimidating looking.
Trail up N. Percy was fairly steep but doable & coming down was easier then expected ...The views at the top were just incredible .
We all had a great time & having Yvan with us sharing stories of the trails & summit he said he had summited like over 40 times .
Thank Cheryl Ann , Deirdre & Yvan for a GREAT hike & day it was a blast
This is 20/52 for 52WAV
