Climbed up Monroe trail. Lots of snow still around 2500 ft and above. Made for a longer trip than planned. Awesome views on a clear day, lots of fun.
Snowy climb to a deserted but stunning summit. 360deg Views of Mansfield to the north, and Lake Champlain and High Peaks to the West.
Great summit and a great view.
...and a lot of other people.
Hiked this one many times . . . I think the last time was when we did lichen research below the summit in high school about a dozen years ago
Sweet half day hike a few years ago. cant remember the exact trails now I took.. a lot of ppl on the summit
great little hike on the burrows trail. probably would have taken a longer route if we had known the trail conditions were going to be so good. going to try the approach on the long trail going north next time.
first experience on an east coast "mountain". Fun hike...looks like the southern face could hold possibility for some rock routes...perhaps some already exist.
Climbed via the Burrows Trail from Huntington. My favorite mountain in Vermont. Climbed up early enough to see a thick layer of clouds in the valley. Beautiful alpine summit provided magnificent views of the crest of the Green Mountains and of the Lake Champlain Vally and the Adirondacks.
I took the Monroe Trail. The day started out cloudy and foggy, but eventually it cleared up... As I was making my way down the mountain. A really good time nonetheless
Wonderful hike, wonderful views all around.
I forget the exact date. Fun scrambling near the top, though minimal visibility on the day I was up there.
Snowshoeing on decently packed Burrows Trail. Not particularly bad but icy near the summit. Saw at least 30 people over the course of the day. Nice winter climb.
One of the few mountains above treeline that I ascended in 2000 where I actually had clear weather.
Got a tad windy as we approached the summit. Great day for a hike!
My husband carried up our son. Our daughter hoofed it up on her own. Ate yummy blueberries at the top. We were happy that our 5 year old made it on her own. Clear & a beautiful 360 degree view.
We climbed into clouds. Summit was nice and rocky, but saw absolutely no view except "Lake Champlain up close" as the locals say. By the time we were a mile down from the summit, the clouds parted.
Climbed up the Dean Trail and went back down the Monroe. When my group got to the summit we could see dark clouds closing in fast. Luckily, we beat the rain to the bottom of the mountain and it did not start raining until we were at the Fork of Dean & Monroe. But boy did it pour. I feel bad for anyone further up the mountain.
This is the mountain I've climbed many times and admired its prominent camel hump shape from my childhood camp on the beach across the lake. Climbed this with friends as part of the VT City Marathon weekend. In 2006, I ran the marathon instead.
Took the loop with friends. Muggy, cloudy weather in the AM, Sunny , beautiful weather in the PM.
