Ascent Trip Report

Nice weather - long loop - not many hikers out. Up the jeep trail from Spruceton Road to the Hunter fire tower (top platform door was locked), down Hunter Mountain trail (yellow), West on deil's Path (red), out and back to Southwest Hunter Mountain summit, and then down the Diamond Notch trail (blue).

The Hunter Mountain Trail (yellow) was pretty overgrown but most of the other trails were in great shape.
