Ascent Trip Report60 degrees and sun is out. Beautiful day, albeit too warm for this time of year for my liking.
Forest City Trail to Long Trail
10:30 am Gudi, Kaerstin and I headed up the Forest City Trail.
Parking lot was overflowing, which might have been a surprise for this time of year, but with these temperatures, not so much
Reached the Montcalm lodge. Trails are pretty wet. Must have been from the snow melt
Reached the summit of Ethan Allen and were glad to find a nice open spot where we could sit and enjoy lunch while looking out over the valley and the mountains in the distance. It was a bit hazy.
Met a group out doing some trail work, clearing water bars and such.
After enjoying a quick PBJ we headed back down.
Back at the car it is 77 degrees! And the road is full of cars! I am sure Camels Hump is a zoo today. But since we went in the opposite direction, we encountered only 4 people on our hike!
