Route Description

Hall Mountain (4/19/03)
 


HALL MOUNTAIN VIA HALL MOUNTAIN TRAIL:
Total Roundtrip Distance: 2.0 miles
Vertical Gain: 200 ft.


Hall Mountain is a very simple Class 1 trail and can be easily ascented in two hours or less. The views on this trail lie on the summit and are limited at that, though there is a decent view of the Uncanoonacs from the summit.

From Podunk Rd. head up the road pass the gated entrance about one hundred feet to the Hall Mtn. Trail (poorly marked as Snowmobile Sign 17 to the left).

The Hall Mtn. Trail begins by ascending at a gradual rate. At roughly 0.3 miles it hits fork with one trail on the left descending and the one to the right rising. Fork right and begin ascending the summit. at roughly 0.6 a recently logged area on your right will begin to appear on your right. At about 0.8 mile the trail eases and hits a false summit before descending and turning right. The trail then rises again to this time the true summit of Hall Mtn.

Moderate views to the west can be seen from the summit. The Uncunoonucs can be seen in the west as well as North Pack and Pack Manadanock. Return the way you came.

Essential Gear

Hall Mtn. is a simple day hike. Therefore only essential hiking gear is needed for the hike such as daypack, light food, hiking boots and water.
