Ascent Trip Report

This is hike to the Bunches Bald Summit from Bunches Bald Overlook on the BRP. Best done when the leaves are off as the the last bit is a bush whack into a very tight and overgrown summit. The bush whack starts from a camp site so make sure the camp site is unoccupied or otherwise ask for permission from the folks staying at the camp site.
