RedwicThe beginning of a big trip!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2012


This was my first stop during a big NE USA peakbagging trip. I drove to the summit parking lot, and then walked from there. I immediately noticed that several people were slanted as they walked; the wind was *that* strong when I visited there. I climbed up the spiral staircase in the summit tower, too. When I got back to my car, the weather shifted to intense rain and wind, which lasted as I headed west into New York to continue my trip. This was my 43rd State Highpoint.

Tommy and I climbed up the Cheshire Harbor Trail and descended the Gould. Totally clear weather. Made for a nice loop on a super day.

Visited my hometown in NY and made the quick trip up to Greylock. It's been almost a year since my last one. Time to pick it up

cgallaugher1st state high point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 28, 2012


Beautiful hike up my first state (home state) high point. Still cold at the top and felt more like late winter than spring during the hike. Hiked past the plane crash site near the AT.

JRaphaelsonRoute Climbed: Greylock Circuit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2011


Hiked the 12.7 mile long Greylock Circuit described in AMC's Berkshire Hiking book. Was a fantastic hike that spanned some of the AT and offered great clear views from multiple summits, including Greylock and its observation tower.

huskertriguyNo people!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 12, 2012


Started at the Roaring Brook trailhead. I didn't see a SOUL until within 1/2-mile of the summit - and that includes Sperry Campground, the road crossings (no cars either), and almost all of Hopper Trail.

The steep portion on Roaring Brook caught me a little by surprise, but no biggie. Was still up and back in about 3 hours, before any inclement weather rolled in.

I think I read someone post somewhere on this site that they do not recommend going up in the tower. I could not disagree more. The windows were clean; the views were beautiful.

technicolorNHBernard Farm Trail to AT to summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 12, 2012


Trail was 4.9 miles with the final 2.4 miles on the AT. An hour and forty five minutes to the summit and ninety minutes back down. Nice mtn with a war memorial at the top. Met four AT hikers there. Got back down before it started pouring : )

cantonelli359Winter Wonderland  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 25, 2012


My husband and I, our friend, and our dog hiked to the summer yesterday with a high wind/snow advisory. We took Hopper to AT about a 8 mile hike. It wasn't too windy until we got to the summit, where it was difficult to stand still long enough to snap a photo on the edge! The summit was absolutely beautiful, blanketed with fresh snow and trees frozen with ice/snow! Can't wait to check it out in the summer!

Did a winter ascent with my brother. We had the whole mountain to ourselves. The top was like a winter wonderland!

Was going to drive to the summit and have a meal at the lodge. Hah. The road was closed for the winter. So I hiked the Crescent Harbor trail. I really appreciated my yax-trax. No snow, but lots of ice on the trail

Hiked up via the Bernard Farm trail to the AT to the summit. A little bit of ice near the top, but nothing too serious. Saw the wreckage of a plane wreck along the BF trail, very interesting!

sdr106Columbus Day Weekend  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 9, 2011


This trip was a challenge for my level of ability since we had to carry everything we needed 2 miles to the campsite, The next morning we began our hike via Sperry Rd. to the Hopper Trail which then connected to the Appalachian Trail and then to the summit. Weather was great and only a slight haze at the top, Mt. Monadnock was a great presence on the horizon.

Is it cheating to drive to the highest point of the state? :) I would like to say the view was beautiful, but it was really foggy, which has it's own kind of beauty I guess.
