Ascent Trip Report

This hike was a traverse from the snow mobile trail to Anne-goat trail then the Belknap ridge trail to mount Major and then orange trail to the parking lot. Well marked and some nice views from south peak but the views from mount major are fantastic. The orange trail down would be a little hazardous in areas if the weather is poor.
