Climbed with Peak of the Ridges and Traveler via the Center Ridge Trail from South Branch. The final summit in a magnificent circut hike. With almost half of the trail at or above treeline, this has to be one of the most scenic hikes in New England. A hidden gem of a hike indeed.
Intercepted my party who got an earlier start and did the full Traveler circuit.
Fantastic views on a perfect weather day - not quite peak foliage yet but still spectacular.
While eating dinner in camp, got a visit from the ranger who wasn't happy that I'd forgotten to sign out after my climb - the register is by the dock and ranger station, but the trailhead is further east, and we'd gone directly to our campsite without passing the register on the way out.
