Ascent Trip Report

Hiked Mt. Crescent from the old trailhead on Randolph Hill Rd, a short distance east of the newer parking area. Cold as hell (-2 F at the trailhead and subzero on the summit), but the views from both near summit lookouts were excellent (true summit was wooded and viewless), and I had the whole place to myself- for good reason. Even the Appalachia lot on US 2 down the street was completely empty. Gotta love winter!
