wildfamGreat Hike and Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2016


Long Trail / Profanity Trail up to the beautiful summit; loved this mountain. Trail easy to follow, mostly tree-lined woods until the last half mile. Plenty of other folks hiking on a great summer day.

x4wheeling1st state high point  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2015


With the help of a local friend of a friend I summited my first state high point on a trip to Vermont. Loved seeing the ecosystems change with elevation and the tundra on the top reminded me of Alaska. Only ones at the summit for sunrise!

I started up from Underhill State Park around noon. It had rained a lot recently, so I took the Sunset Ridge trail, which the ranger had recommended as the least waterlogged. The going was still pretty wet, but not nearly as bad as Mt. Marcy the day before. Though the weather had cleared up down below, everything above treeline was locked in clouds... my second cloudy summit. Oh well. The scrambling was still fun, and all the waterfalls along the trail were going like crazy.

The nice thing about this hike is that about half of it is in the open air. Makes for good stopping points along the way up

The weather stole my views as visibility wasn't great with the snow and wind. Fun climb. Went down Laura Cowles.

Cold and Clear to start the day with 5-6 fresh on the ground. Wind was whipping up top and clouds moved in. Could see a dark line of clouds over the ADK that approached quickly from the west. Awesome day to top out Vermont! Took Sunshine ridge? is that correct? Sounds right!

I hiked this via the Long's trail. I loved the views. The "Green Mountain" state is aptly named.

islandborn11Sweet summer hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2015


Did this one on the middle day between Marcy and Katydin. Underhill State Park is about forty minutes west of Burlington. Took the Sunset trail up and back in about four hours total. Fun, strenuous hike with warblers serenading me all the way up the mountain. Steward at the top was super friendly. A little rain on he way down but otherwise no slip ups.

jgreenerunsFirst Summit Ever  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2006


First ever mountain! and first highpoint. I hiked in a large group of college students and it was a nice challenge for my early mountain self. I had no idea it started a small fire inside of my that would later explode into a move to the west.

The views from the top showed a spectacular valley of lush green trees. Wish I could go back and soak it all in again.

My girlfriend and I drove up from CT to do this. We went up the Long Trail, which took a bit to find. It was much harder than I thought, and I wasn't sure if my girlfriend could make it up the last .3 miles, but she did, and I was so proud of her. The view from the top was gorgeous. Absolutely breathtaking. You could see for miles. Definitely one of the more rewarding highpoints I've done.

ct_highpointerFun hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2014
Decided to take Maple Ridge up to the forehead and follow the ridge to the summit and then down Sunset Ridge.

Maple Ridge was steep but not particularly difficult though there were some fun spots.

Ran into crowds at the visitor center but most stopped at the "lip" to enjoy the views.

Saw the cutoff for the "Subway" on the way to the summit. That was a fun diversion. Definitely take that if you've got the time.

Summit was real windy but not too crowded.

Headed back down Sunset Ridge to the ranger station. 7 hour total trip time. Appreciated the clean facilities at the ranger station to clean up.

Went into Burlington to view Lake Champlain with the Adirondacks as a backdrop. Made for a cool sunset.
