Ascent Trip ReportWhacked up from Cooper Run at first stream crossing through mixed forest. At summit was surprised to see ATV- sled trail running north south along ridge, could have just taken this easy way and avoided alot of hard work off trailing. Summit was cleared with a great 90 degree n-e rather bucolic very Vermont views of the rolling hills and mountains of the north on a perfect weather day. Summit register was something not normally seen on a mountain top but appeared to be some variation on a geocaching game, with many scrawled children's entries.
