No people!  Sucess!

Started at the Roaring Brook trailhead. I didn't see a SOUL until within 1/2-mile of the summit - and that includes Sperry Campground, the road crossings (no cars either), and almost all of Hopper Trail.

The steep portion on Roaring Brook caught me a little by surprise, but no biggie. Was still up and back in about 3 hours, before any inclement weather rolled in.

I think I read someone post somewhere on this site that they do not recommend going up in the tower. I could not disagree more. The windows were clean; the views were beautiful.

Bernard Farm Trail to AT to summit  Sucess!

Trail was 4.9 miles with the final 2.4 miles on the AT. An hour and forty five minutes to the summit and ninety minutes back down. Nice mtn with a war memorial at the top. Met four AT hikers there. Got back down before it started pouring : )

Winter Wonderland  Sucess!

My husband and I, our friend, and our dog hiked to the summer yesterday with a high wind/snow advisory. We took Hopper to AT about a 8 mile hike. It wasn't too windy until we got to the summit, where it was difficult to stand still long enough to snap a photo on the edge! The summit was absolutely beautiful, blanketed with fresh snow and trees frozen with ice/snow! Can't wait to check it out in the summer!

1st Highpoint  Sucess!

Did a winter ascent with my brother. We had the whole mountain to ourselves. The top was like a winter wonderland!

Skated Uphill  Sucess!

Was going to drive to the summit and have a meal at the lodge. Hah. The road was closed for the winter. So I hiked the Crescent Harbor trail. I really appreciated my yax-trax. No snow, but lots of ice on the trail

State HP#10  Sucess!

Hiked up via the Bernard Farm trail to the AT to the summit. A little bit of ice near the top, but nothing too serious. Saw the wreckage of a plane wreck along the BF trail, very interesting!

Columbus Day Weekend  Sucess!

This trip was a challenge for my level of ability since we had to carry everything we needed 2 miles to the campsite, The next morning we began our hike via Sperry Rd. to the Hopper Trail which then connected to the Appalachian Trail and then to the summit. Weather was great and only a slight haze at the top, Mt. Monadnock was a great presence on the horizon.

SHP #8  Sucess!

Is it cheating to drive to the highest point of the state? :) I would like to say the view was beautiful, but it was really foggy, which has it's own kind of beauty I guess.

3rd Highpoint!  Sucess!

My brother and I had a really nice hike up to the summit and the view from the top was beautiful. This was the third highpoint for my brother and I.

2nd highpoint  Sucess!

I climbed this Mountain with a bunch of friends that I went to Iraq with when we all made it home safely. I have since gone back and snow shoed up Thunderbolt, which was very tough!! It is a beautiful area with a restaurant located on top!!

Just a drive up, and a hike down :-p  Sucess!

The only highpoint I've hiked down from. Did this in pouring rain with the summer camp I was with for 2 weeks. We descended the AT from the summit to Money Brook Trail into the Hopper, then took the Hopper Trail back up to the campground.

Sled Mountaineering!

We camped at the base of thunderbolt, climbed up in the morning and sledded down!

Sledding not recommended unless you've got em screwed on tight!

Highly Civilized  Sucess!

I've done this twice, being from MA. Once in winter with no one on top and a very frigid rain, and once at the start of the Long Trail with great crowds.

Nice view  Sucess!

As I started to know off high points in the NE, this one surprised me. It didn't have the throngs of people, and the views were really nice as the foliage started to come it.
