Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from Under Mountain Road near Boston Corners. Took the South Taconics Trail. Conditions were icy. We were able to side step most of the icy sections on the trail but micro-spikes were preferred. This high point is just a short bushwhack off of the trail.

We did this as part of a three summit hike. To see the rest of the reports, visit my reports on Alander Mountain and Bish Bash Mountain.
