Ascent Trip Report

Somewhat pleasant day with lots of traffic on Watatic. Had to park on Rt 119 as the parking lot was full when I arrived. I was hoping to do the entire thing with my dog off leash but that was impossible.

It was my first non-snow hike of the year. I took the long loop to Watatic, going up state-line over Nutting Hill (make sure you don't stay on State Line at the junction) and then down to the col and up the scenic pine forest to Watatic. The views on East Watatic are the best so make sure you go the extra 0.1 miles to that summit.

The summit had maybe 20 people with very clear views in all directions. Had a quick lunch and headed down to complete the loop. The trail was muddy in spots but overall, a gorgeous late April hike.
