Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up with Dan and Sammy via Connery Pond trail. We left our road bikes locked on the back of Blue Subie and Dad picked them up after we left. I liked the hike up the was a totally different flavor than the normal Wilmington Trail. The top section had a nice little rocky scramble.

We met Dad and his friends Steve and Bob at the summit, they biked up (well Bob biked part of the way, then rode down and got Dad's truck). Bob drove Dad's truck back down to the 4 corners in Wilmington. Sammy got in the truck with Bob. Dan, Dad, Steve, and I rode our road bikes down the access road down into Wilmington. Hike up, bike down. Total fun. And another trip up Whiteface and yet I still have never hiked back down a trail...
