Ascent Trip Report

Jones Nose to the summit and back again, generally north up and south down. Jones Nose trail to Appalachian Trail to summit, Overlook Trail to Hopper Trail to CCC Dynamite Trail return. About 1,100 feet in elevation gained on the way up. The trip was about 9.5 miles all together. 1:30 up and about 2:15 down, pushing a pretty tough pace, I thought.

Great sunny day in the upper 60's with a nice breeze. Greylock Summit was crowded with hikers, motorists, and families, but the AT and the trail descent was almost totally empty. Great colors, about a week before their peak. Very comfortable, terrific day.
