Ascent Trip Report

This was peak #3 in a 4-peak hike. From Wolcott Hill, we headed NE on the Blue Dash Trail. The trail descend, crosses the dirt road, and up the SW slope of Hemenway Hill. After a couple switchbacks, the grade levels out and the subtle peak is 100ft or so off to the left of the trail. It is not immediately obvious, but the woods thin out a bit near the peak area, making it easier to walk around to confirm the high point. While we were there, a pile of rocks marked the spot that appeared to us to be the peak.
