Winter Fun  Sucess!

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.

Missed, 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.

The Long Trail  Sucess!

It was an unusually warm October day in Stowe, 75 F and total sunshine. It was a bit windy, even at the start. It took my climbing partner and I about 2 hours to reach the summit from the trailhead @ HWY 108 (Mountain Road). We made a dozen stops for photo ops. The summit views were outstanding in all directions. It was extremely windy though and we didn't stay long. The hike down was hard on the knees. My 2nd state highpoint.

Rainy Saturday  Sucess!

Took the Hell Brook Trail most of the way. Nice and challenging, fun, and WET in the rainy weather. Very beautiful on the way up.

5 times!  Sucess!

I have been up this mountain in four consecutive summers, from 2004-2007. I have always had great weather for it. I never really appreciated the magnitude of the mountain until I came up over the forehead on the Long Trail with a 30lb pack on my back. I had always come up from the north on the LT in previous years. Did it a 5th time with my wife, brother, mom, and dad on a vacation to Vermont in 2010. Went up Sunset Ridge Trail and down Laura Cowles Trail.

A Great End to the Year  Sucess!

A fun day in the snow during a dry winter in Vermont. We even managed to pick up a hitchhiker in town and bring him up the mountain. Unfortunately, Craig twisted his ankle on the descent.

The best mistake ever  Sucess!

We wanted an easy short hike for the kids. My partner accidently picked the subway trail (a little harder than the other trails) and it turned out to be an awesome adventure. (One mom was in sandels & a skirt, but she's tough.) The kids were **delighted** by the pristine trail and fun caves. Loved the ladder. We had a great time. Couldn't have been more fun.

Clear Day  Sucess!

It was a really clear day. Our route started from the end of the Parking Lot of the Toll road up the Long Trail to the Chin. It's an easy class 2 which makes for a lot of fun.

Hell Brook  Sucess!

The Hell Brook Trail is aptly named. A lot of scrambles on wet slabs and an unrelenting grade until you reach the ridge… and what a ridge! Mansfield is a beautiful mountain. I hope to get back to Vermont more often.

Laura Cowles & Sunset Ridge  Sucess!

Asended from Underhill State Park via the Laura Cowles trail and returned via Sunset Ridge. This is a great loop hike and descending Sunset Ridge allowed us to better enjoy the views out toward Lake Champlain an the Adirondacks
