Ascent Trip ReportI hiked this mountain with three of my friends from school. It was the first hike ever for two of them.
We took the Boulder Field Trail to the North Mountain Trail. We got some pictures of the large boulders and headed to the trailhead.
The hike there started out fairly easy with some steeper parts. When we got to the pond, we climbed some rocks and took pictures on them. We went down the rocks and went farther on the trail.
There were some steeper parts, but there were a lot of flatter parts. I told my friends that they may think we're on the summit, but there's still some more hiking to go.
We got up to the reflector on the north end of the mountain and took a break, then went to the summit.
The summit is wooded and is marked by a rockpile and a USGS marker. We rested, drank some water, took some pictures, and went back to the viewpoint at the reflector to take some pictures, and then we went down.
The trip down was like the trip up, except for a few steep, aching, potentially hazardous parts. We passed the boulders and got in the vehicles we drove there to drive to South Mountain.
