Ascent Trip Report

Directions to the TH - Take the gravel road on the west side of rte 28N, 8.8 miles north of Minerva, immediately after the Boreas River Bridge. Carefully drive this road for 2.6 miles to the posted TH on your right.

The easy to moderate trail and the hard wood forest makes for an interesting outing, the ridge walk reminds one of the High Peaks. It has a wooded summit except for a super north lookout towards the High Peaks. The Fire Tower was open.
