Ascent Trip ReportCame up Alander Mountain Trail from Mt. Washington State Forest HQ. Total elevation gain around 700 feet, which includes a slight dip down from the parking lot before you make the ascent to the main summit. If you include a visit to the nearby highpoint of Columbia County, NY (just on the state line), total elevation gain becomes about 800. The wild blueberries everywhere on the mountaintop were a pleasant reward, rivaled only by the views from this exposed summit. Signs say the trip is 3.5 miles one-way, but our GPS said 5.5 miles round trip.
