Ascent Trip Report

Trail steepens rapidly from the Barnum Rd trailhead in Maplecrest. Near-constant uphill is broken near the summit by a number of rock faces and scrambles. Atop some of these cliffs are natural lookouts to the south, with the East Jewett Range and Hunter Mountain visible quite prominently. The actual summit is some distance from the overlook and maybe 200 ft off the trail, and didn't appear to be marked.
