Ascent Trip Report

Monday: 11 miles (trails/mountain/roads) - w/ Kevin Tilton up in Effingham, NH. Trailhead on High Watch Rd. up to the Green Mountain firetower (1907 ft) then back down the other side (old steep jeep road) and out to the main roads that go around the perimeter of Green Mtn and back up to the trailhead. Very steep climb up to the summit of Green. 760 ft. up to 1907 in 16:06 (over a span of only a mile and a half or so). Kevin's Garmin Data here (in km and meters). We climbed up the top of the tower but the cab was locked as it is now only a part-time / high risk-only status tower (since 2009). The views were still pretty awesome as you could see Ossipee Lake, Province Lake (Wakefield, NH), Mt. Washington (with it's snowy summit), and lots of other Maine and NH vantage points (including a really cool view of part of the 50 mile corridor that the tornado ripped through back in July of 2008)... My legs were pretty heavy from the weekend's racing and my right heel was killing me on the way up the steep climb up Green. Tight and heavy legs, quads, calves on the way back on the hilly roads leading back up to High Watch. <1:26:29>
