We hiked up Stimson even though the gate was unlocked, after which we drove up Frailey. Apparently the gate is unlocked on weekdays until 3:30pm.
Good early spring conditioner. Better views than I expected. Watch out for logging trucks on a weekday!
Good trip for the day after Christmas. Snowshoed from 1,700', socked in at the summit. Quick and simple.
Good spring conditioner on a nice day.
Easy to find, nice views on the approach. The last spur road is starting to get overgrown, still easy to find.
Duane and I found snow above 1500 ft with 3 to 4 feet on the summit. Noisy dogs at a house part way up the road. They didn't come too close to us though.
The ride/push up made for a hell of a decent.
Did this along with Mount Washington!
With questionable snow conditions at higher elevations, we decided on Stimson Hill. Sure, it has low elevation and is a road walk/snowshoe, but it is still one of Washington's Top 200 most prominent peaks. We followed it up by also ascending neighboring Mount Washington, just across the county line.
This is a nice little summit with decent views. Had lots of post-holing. Also did adjacent Mt. Washington.
Did this one in deep winter powder and regretted not bringing the snowshoes despite the low elevation.
This is a great hike if your looking for something that is straight forward with good elevation gain. The sunset was amazing the evening I was on the Summit.
