Ascent Trip Report

Decided to do both Peekamoose and Table in one trip, and parked the car off Peekamoose Road (aka Rt 42). Unfortunately the views near the top are not stellar as both mountains contain full tree-lines, so the views are simply a collection of openings in the trees off several cliffs. Heck, I never even found the USGS markers on either mountain. I hiked as far as the lean-to on Table Mountain, so the total trip was 10.2 miles according to the trail map. Only ran into one other hiker on the trip, a fellow New Jerseyan. These are easy peaks to bag, but not much there worth writing home about.
