New Trail  Sucess!

Hiked up here as #3 fire tower peak of the day. I took the newer, slightly longer, less steep trail to the summit. This trail starts at a trailhead about 1 mile south of the old trail, so there are 2 options or you could do a loop hike. The trail was in great shape and interesting. The views at the summit were awesome with or without the firetower, which could be climbed to just below the cab, which was locked. I have to try the old trail next time!

Icey hike  Sucess!

Hiked up with my little sister to end the year right! Very easy with crampons on, without them it would be quite tough. The snow was very icey and there was a decent windchill up at the summit. Easy out and back, very fun.

Quick Hike/Good Views  Sucess!

Nice warm spring day, views from the summit of Lake Champlain were nice. Firetower cab was locked, but is open in the summer. Saw some falcons near the cliffs.
