Ascent Trip ReportMy original intention, as I set out this New Brunswick Day, was just to hike out to Mawhane Mountain, but after completing that, I decided to continue on to Turtle Mtn. It was a beautiful day and surprisingly, I only met 3 couples, their dogs, and a guy on a dirt bike along the way.
It's about one hour to the half-way point, an open rocky clearing which is also the junction for the trail to Mawhane Mtn, then another hour to reach the summit of Turtle Mtn. The last 5-8 minutes is a steep ascent, but the view from the top is worth it.
