Moogie737Long Trail but only half way, then make my own route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 3, 2011

Moogie737

Where in the blazes did the (white) blazes go? Hint: if you lose the trail, find a ski run and mush to the top of the gondola house, then follow the boot pack up the so-called gondola trail. I think it brings you out near the top of the profanity trail. I lucked out and had a bluebird day with temperatures near or below zero, however. Winds were gusting but mostly under 10 mph. Next time I'd like to see the Taft Lodge and Lake of the Clouds.

I summitted as part of the Long Trail during my through-hike. The roads near the top were uninteresting to say the least, but in the obscurity of fogs they were soon forgotten.

Three times now - once via Long Trail from the picnic area and twice via Hell's Brook. It just doesn't look like there's any way up when crossing the Adam's Apple, but it's really nice from there to the top.

Enjoyed the sounds of far off fireworks at the Taft shelter and in the morning, climbed the crags.

up Hell Brook, backtrack to Adams Apple, summit, along ridge to Nose, back up ridge to Profanity and down Long Trail.
Hell Brook was very steep and wet - tough trail. Profanity should be considered rough and wet but by comparison it was a cakewalk.
Next time I'll try Sunset Ridge - looks like a beautiful trail.

Took the easy route along the ridge from the toll road parking lot. It was a beautiful summer day and the trail was quite crowded. Some mistook the artillery ? explosions in the distance for thunder. Nice views and pleasant summit volunteers from the GMC.

Perfect weather. Up and down in 1 hr 48 min. On the run down, one of the hikers saw me and said to his friends, "hey look, someone under 18 who still has good knees." As I ran by, I said back "f%#@ that, I'm 43!"

Climbed sunset ridge route. Amazing views above tree line. My four year old son actually did the whole thing himself.

Nice hike, but a lot of fog prevented any picture-taking.

Date Climbed: Sep 27, 1987
It was so clear you could see the buildings in downtown Berlington! Mts. Washington and Marcy were covered in snow and it looked like you could hit them with a driver! I think you could even see the buildings in Montreal! The Autumn leaves were at there peak and there were hundreds of people on top. Even a TV crew was there! HP #20 for me. Got all 50 in 2002. Got the NE 111 in 2001.

Hiked up the Long Trail on my first day ever in Vermont (a beautiful state). The fall colors were in full force and the setting was very nice. The trail up has a steep grade with a few small waterfalls and some nice scrambling near the top. The weather was marginal on the summit that day and unfortunately there was no view from the top. I descended the Profanity Trail back to the Long Trail to make a nice loop. Three hours round trip.

We were lazy -- took the toll road up and then hiked over to the high point from there, pup in tow.

It was still awesome -- views incredible -- if we'd had more time I'd have gone for a full hike up. What a gorgeous mountain, fantastic autumn views of the valleys below.

It was absolutely frigid on top, but the colors were fantastic! Shocked some lady when she saw me wearing shorts. :)

Decided to check out Vermont for the first time this past weekend. We camped at Underhill State Park and I hiked up the Sunset Ridge Trail to the Chin. It was supposed to rain, so I hustled a little quicker than I would normally. It was cloudy, but there were still great views. Detoured to Cantilever Rock on the way back down.
I plan on going back to the area and checking out more of the trails VT has to offer. Went to Ben &Jerry's the next day before heading home.
