Ascent Trip Report

Entered 10/5/2019.

I still haven't run into people yet. This was the second summit of my Robert Frost Trail hike from Puffers Pond to The Notch Visitor Center. The RF Trail did not pass over the summit but a secondary trail led from the col at around 760 feet to the summit at 912 feet. It was much nicer than Mt. Boreas but offered no views. The area around Mt. Poverty and Mt. Orient was my favorite of the hike.
