Ascent Trip Report

Shortly after reaching The Pinnacle you descend down the other side of it before ascending again, this time over Lyndeborough Mountain. If you stay on the main trail you could easily bypass Lyndeborough Mountain's peak, but as the trail continues to rise you will see short trail off to the right leading up to its top. Views from the top are more obscured then what we found at The Pinnacle (as well as what we would find at Rose), so perhaps that's why I could not find much mention of this peak while researching online, prior to setting out to hike it.

Note: The main trail has some diverging paths, but at just the right moments, those maintaining the trail have inserted tiny signs pointing to "Rose", and have also used colored ties that are well placed on tree branches, marking the way. Keep an eye out for them and you'll have no trouble.
