Ascent Trip Report

A quick afternoon hike to on a local trail. We took the Pitcher Hill Trail up from Stryker Road, fairly close to Exit 12A on I-89. About 0.7 miles north of the exit on Georges Mill Road, Stryker Road is on the left. We drove 0.4 miles up and parked on the left, just before a gate with a sign indicating "private drive". Just a bit past the gate, there is a more welcoming sign pointing the way to the Pitcher Hill Trail on the left. For the first 0.15 miles, the trail contours around the base of the hill. In the next 0.1 mile, it climbs moderately to a ledge with a minor view to the south. Then, it climbs easily to the summit ledges in the next 0.25 miles. The trail is not well used up here and takes care to follow through tall brush. Various openings around the summit have good views in different directions.
