Ascent Trip ReportI arrived at the parking lot for the Pitcher Mountain trails, which is located off of NH 123, at about 11:30 AM. I got started after that.
After signing in at the register, I set out for the summit on the Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway. It follows a road and keeps an easy to moderate grade for most of its length up the mountain. The trail was covered in snow at first, so I wore extra traction. Later on, the snow started to disappear.
The trail turned left and went steeper uphill while passing a field with good views. In a few minutes, I reached a metal thing from which I could see the fire tower. I could either take the road or the trail to the summit. I took the trail. It was narrow and rough in places, but I reached the summit about 15 minutes after I started.
Pitcher Mountain's summit is very bare and open and has excellent views. The first place I headed was up the fire tower. At the top of it were more good views. I could see Mount Monadnock, Mount Sunapee, Mount Kearsarge (I think), and a ski mountain to the west. It got windy, so I went back to the ground.
After getting a drink and something to eat, I went back to my truck.
