Ascent Trip Report

An easy gravel road walk with a short bushwack from the north side ..... 1.2 miles, 40 minutes RT.

After driving around/asking-the-locals we finally found the shortest/easiest route to this summit ...... an unsigned gravel road on the north side of the mountain probably built for future development.

From the center of Cornish travel south on High Road to a fork at 1.5 miles, stay left on the paved Old Limington Road to a second fork at .8 miles. This time bear right on Pease Road and drive 1.1 miles to a three-way-junction ......left is a private driveway #244, straight ahead is the narrow continuation of Pease Road and to the right is a gravel road that climbs to just below the summit. Park here at this three-way-junction, this is the TH.

Hike up the steep gravel road generally south for about half-a-mile to a dead-end below/north side of the summit, here you are offered a beautiful (only) 180 degree panorama. Bushwack south about 200 yards to the obvious wooded Highpoint, you'll cross/follow recently cleared woods presumably for future roads. Walk a few hundred feet further south to get a view of the top of the Hosac's Tower.
