CRiedel2First TimeTo Vermont  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2009


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.

A great hike but no views above treeline because of weather. Called my Dad from the summit to wish him a happy Father's Day. Would love to go again for the views! HP #4.

osatrik1st Ascent!!!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 1, 1985


Ok, maybe not the overall 1st ascent. But the oldest documented on summitpost.org (as of this entry), and it was my daughter and my first state highpoint. I subsequently visited 49 state high points, and Vanessa summited 39.

I literally could have stayed on this summit the entire day. Was cloudy and foggy when we got near the top, but the skies opened up, and it was absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to go back to these mountains!

Long Trail from Rt. 108. Good hike up starts in beech forest and ends above timberline in sub-alpine tundra. Great views from top, but trail was very busy.

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!

Date Climbed: Sep 20, 1983


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.

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.
