Ascent Trip Report

Decided to hike the Devil's Path over some 35'ers. Day 1 began with an ascent over West Kill and a night spent in the Diamond Notch Lean-to. On the second day I hiked up SW Hunter, descended to Devil's Tombstone, and hiked over Plateau Mountain to the Mink Hollow Lean-to. My final day started with an ascent over Plateau Mountain, a descent to Devil's Tombstone, and an ascent of Hunter Mountain. From Hunter I decided to head down the Spruceton Trail and followed the road back to my car at the Devil's Path trailhead. Pics
