Ascent Trip Report

Old Wood Roads zig-zag to within yards of summit and former tower footings with short bushwacks while following road junctions upward. The sharp turn in North Road now has two private residences along old side road which appears as a driveway, first homeowner was friendly allowing me to park and enter woods behind his garage, exiting at drives end at other home. The Vermont Cranberry Company nearby along North Road might also offer clues to accessing Gilson Mountain Summit. (3rd of four climbs for day)
