Ascent Trip Report

Very nicely maintained trail. First section is Harris Preserve, then it is state land. Blue markers lead right up to Potash summit (marked with a cairn). There is a nature trail (red markers) as a side trip that will loop you right back to the main blue trail. Trail work is very apparent, with switchbacks being made, rock steps, etc. At one point, there is a sign that the trail has not been fully developed. The blue markers end and there is flagging tape leading to the summit. Some nice views but none from summit itself. Met two trail workers on the way down. One was working on the rock steps, the other was clearing limbs. Very obvious how dedicated they are. They will be putting more blue markers up and ensuring there is enough flagging tape so that when it snows, it is easy to follow the trail.
