TahawusMount Mansfield  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 28, 2007


Climbed via the Maple Ridge Trail from Stevensville. Saw dozens of salamanders for most of the hike. Lots of mud and even a few patches of snow. Great views during the hike along the ridge to the Chin. There were a ton of families who had driven up to the Nose and were hiking up to the Chin. It was Memorial Day Weekend after all. My second state highpoint!

ChinigoMansfield Loop - up Long Trail, down Haselton  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2008


Weather was better than expected (partly cloudy), though because it had rained the day before everything was wet and the streams were running! Going up was almost a continuous ascent, and the climb to the Chin was great fun. (I also made a side trip to the Adam's Apple.) Someone left a pair of red poles (Leki?) by the side of the trail - where it got steep between the AA and Chin - I hope they retrieved them later. Views were sporadic due to the clouds, but that was expected.

As usual, I met and talked to many nice people along the way, especially at the Chin summit and at the visitor's center. (Thanks for the water purification tablet!)

Defiantly a difficult ascent. The Hell Brook route was wonderful and you got to do some climbing. The Rocks on the route were wet so there was always the danger of slipping :/. My dad wanted to descend the Long Trail since descending on rocks isn't the best idea. The chin was spectacular!

On the road with the family in tow. They humored me in allowing me a quick ascent while they enjoyed the grassy meadows below. Hazy day with wonderful views of the countryside.

Incredible, very direct route, steady climb. Still about 3+ ft of snow in spots on the trail and some ice above the treeline. Unbeleiveable views of the Adironaks, whites, greens, and lake champlain. the summit ridge is a natural work of art and an awesome hike. The air was so clean snow was visible on the Whites and Adirondaks with the naked eye (60+ miles).

Great hike up. Followed the LT. Lots of fog and rain that day so we never got a view from the summit.

Date Climbed: Jul 28, 2007


Hiked the Sunset Ridge trail to the chin. Unfortunately, all of the great views I heard about on that trail were obscured by clouds. Nice hike, went up and back in one morning / afernoon. Had lunch on the summit. High point #1!

Date Climbed: Jan 20, 2008


A little winter fun after the previous day on Mt. Washington. Used the Cliff Trail from the gondola to summit, then roundtrip traverse to Forehead, and descent in time for the football games.

Six2Missed, twice!


I attempted a northbound hike of the Long Trail in the fall of 2005. I ran out of time and money in Jonesville and Mansfield escaped me.

This past September, I drove the auto road up, but it was colder than I expected. I hadn't planned to be there, and I didn't have the time to hit the summit - bummer.

Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2007


It was an unusually warm October day in Stowe, 75 F and total sunshine. It was a bit windy, even at the start. It took my climbing partner and I about 2 hours to reach the summit from the trailhead @ HWY 108 (Mountain Road). We made a dozen stops for photo ops. The summit views were outstanding in all directions. It was extremely windy though and we didn't stay long. The hike down was hard on the knees. My 2nd state highpoint.

tioga5 times!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2010


I have been up this mountain in four consecutive summers, from 2004-2007. I have always had great weather for it. I never really appreciated the magnitude of the mountain until I came up over the forehead on the Long Trail with a 30lb pack on my back. I had always come up from the north on the LT in previous years. Did it a 5th time with my wife, brother, mom, and dad on a vacation to Vermont in 2010. Went up Sunset Ridge Trail and down Laura Cowles Trail.
