Ascent Trip Report

It's almost -15 degrees. Most people decide not to hike today. Jason and I head up. The trail was broken out 2 days prior and is perfect for hiking today.

8:30 - We arrive at the trailhead and I discover I left my pack in the kitchen back in Eustis. It's extremely cold today and I will definitely want to have my emergency gear, so we return to the house to get it.
9:30 - We are back to the parking which is at the gated driveway just off Kennebago Rd. We follow the driveway up and quickly pick up the trail the group packed out 2 days earlier. Microspikes only today which is nice.
11:40 - Summit. Only issue was we missed the turn off the snowmobile trail by a little bit but quickly turned back and found it. Jason bangs the summit register open and we both sign it.
11:50 - After some quick food, drink and pics, we head back down.
13:17 - Back at the car. Done.
