Made it to the summit. Warm and muggy but nice. Great views all around. Could not find the plane crash site. Will have to look for it again.
Finally got back and found the crash site. Very cool. Headed back over the to Gentian Pond and spent the night.
I was up there July 22 and never found the crash site. I think I was "right" there but never saw it.
Drove up from Boston and camped near the summit of the "Overlook". Then proceeded to the summit of Mount Success in the morning- which was very pleasant. The plan was to then head over to Goose Eye Mountain but we ran out out of time. Came down the Carlos Col trail and hitched a ride back to my car in a couple's pick-up truck. They even let me help myself to the cooler full of beer in the back! So awesome! Can't wait to go back to this range.
Made it up on 23 Oct. Weather was good and cooperated. Started from Success Pond Rd up to the outlook and then to the top of the mountain. We also found the plane wreckage and looked around. Very cool hike.
Hit the summit, and I headed to the plane crash but my hiking partner bonked (so I was on my own) and I never found the plane. Thought it best not to be poking around off trail alone!
Southbound thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail.
Good views on the summit. Some ice and snow in early november. Awesome views of Washington and the high peaks.
Up and over, then into Maine "The Way Life Should Be".
Great time hiking through the Mahoosucs with Rainier. Tough trail!
Successfully made it to the last state on the AT!
how sad to be leaving nh. last state to go. GA->ME
Later climbed in winter from Success Pond Road
Climbed Success several times (Successfully, I might add). The most memorable time was with my Boy Scout Troop. Tim Bevins was working on his Cooking merit badge and we stopped on the summit to cook up a big pot of corn chowder starting from potatoes, milk, corn, etc. The results were tasty and warmed our frozen fingers (did I mention that it was windy and snowing at the time?) quite a bit. Nice mountain in spite of this.
We made it to the top of this great mountain on the 2nd day of our hike through the Mahoosucs. Unfortunately we couldn't linger because it was getting late and we wanted to get to Carlo Col shelter before dark (we didn't quite make it). This mountain is one of several spectacular ones in the Mahoosucs.
