Ascent Trip Reportgot a late start from the Biscuit Brook parking on Rt.47. 12pm, temps were perfect but skies were overcast. the route was nice, starting with a short climb followed by a long flat section which gently climbs. the lean-to seemed to mark the halfway point of the hike, after which there are a few easy stream crossings made tricky by the recent hurricane which not only left much blow down but gouged out the edges of the streams. at some point the trail turns into a steeper climb about the same time the stream is left behind. the climb is surprisingly basic and doesn't last long before flattening out. at this point the cutoff to the short bushwhack/herdpath is only six hundred meres out. there was no real view point from the top/cannister. luckily the leaves were down and views of fir and the range beyond were visible. after a short break the winds kicked up and i made my return to the car. 2hrs to climb, 2hrs back to the car.
