Ascent Trip Report

Enjoyable trip from Bennington to the trailhead through Arlington and Manchester Village. There was some serious wealth in this area and there still is - who is staying at the Hotel Equinox these days? Must be the folks who are benfiting from the Republican tax plan. Nevetheless I love the traditional architecture and and village setting in Manchester.

The trailhead is to the rear of Hotel Equinox in the "Preserve". You can park there or a little higher up in a Burr and Burton parking lot where most of the kids drive cars betters than yours and mine.

Foolishly I neglected to bring my microspikes (left them in the car). BY the time I reached 2500 feet it was snowing and a little icy. At the summit several inches of snow, cold and fog. A quick and slippery descent.
