14 June 2011 and 18 June 2011. I hiked to the summit post, then explored the area where the true summit (with no views) is. The talus fields along the way are more interesting than the summit. Since then I have climbed it on 21 October 2011 and 6 March 2012.
Climbed Trayfoot during a three-day backcountry trip via the Furnace Mountain Trail. Mountain laurel and orchids were in full bloom. Saw a bear cub running parallel to trail during descent to Paine Run. Great Day!
The first time that I visited Trayfoot, spring was just starting. I took the Appalachian Trail to the summit of Blackrock. It was cold and windy at the summit, but the views were fantastic! The side trip to Trayfoot Mountain was worth it.
My second time was June 2007. It was a very hot day. I went up the Furnance Mountain Trail, made a side trip to the summit of Furnace Mountain, and continued to the top of Trayfoot.
