Hike Report

I hiked this mountain back in 1995 very nice then. Very different now, 12/19/2019 I still have not been able to find the the trail once you enter the spruce area and leave the logging roads. however I did manage to make it to the top but not the true summit. My advise is to forget about finding the old trail. Not saying I won't try again to find the old trail. Follow the trail and cairns through the young beech trees until you get to a swampy area an arrow and carin will point you to go right and cross a small stream. Don't go that way stay left and continue up a logging road. (starts to get steeper) The logging road will dead end just continue up the mountain straight and to the right slightly not too hard of a bushwack. The ridge area has been practically clear cut so you will be able to find it easily. The true summit has not been logged but is a ways off. The false summit is easy to get to and offers 360 views thanks to the loggers their is a cairn here. Head back out the same way. Been up here a few times and my advise is the quickest and easiest way to get to the top. However like I said I will continue to look for the old trail. I think next time I will head up my way hike over to the small pond and swampy area and try to find the top of the old trail that way.
