Ascent Trip Report

A quick evening walk to a nice hill in the Nottingcook Forest. There is a nice network of walking paths here, although some of the trails are excessive - there are two trails side by side in the summit clearing. The huge logging cut at the top provides some fine long-distance views of southern NH. Also took the trail to Steer Brook Gorge, which is over-advertised. It's literally a random brook in the forest with a sign that says "Steer Brook Gorge". Quite Laughable.
