Ascent Trip Report

Almost finished with the NEHH. Today wrapped up VT with the Jays. I drove over from South Hero (~1:15) and parked at the long trail crossing on Rt 242.

12:15 - Departed parking lot on the Long Trail south.
13:00 - Popped out on the ski trail. Headed across to follow LT to summit.
13:05 - Jay Peak summit. Quick pictures, then headed down the ski trail to the LT into the woods. I made a little mistake by following the LT. As I was descending more than expected and also headed in the wrong direction, I quickly realized my mistake and turned around. Went about 100' down the LT the wrong way. When you enter the woods, you will see the flagged bushwhack by the blowdown.
13:55 - Big Jay summit. Took pics of the ski patrol sled and sign the log book, then headed back.
14:20 - Back at Jay Peak summit.
15:10 - Back at parking lot.
