Ascent Trip ReportTook Dry Brook Road to Seager Parking lot and started up the Seager-Big Indian Trail. There are multiple river crossings up until the "waterfall". Then you pass a bridge that leads to a private road. Around here is where we took a bearing up the steep hill on the right, 194 degrees SE. At first it starts off steep then levels off for a good while. Then it will get fairly steep again, we ran into a lot of ferns and nettles. Eventually near the top conifer forests start to emerge, these can get tricky to walk through. You will find a herds path eventually if you haven't already found it on the way up that will snake around the precipice of the mountain to the summit. There is a canister at the top. Coming down we followed the herds path and witnessed a very nice view right before a dive back into the nettles. Surprisingly good view for a bushwhack! We came down and began to lose the ridge heading towards Flatiron Brook and quickly regained the ridge, eventually ending up farther down the Seager-Big Indian Trail then when we started up the mountain. This was ideal as we were heading towards Eagle Mt. afterwards.
