Ascent Trip Report

60 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
10:50 am
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.
2:10 pm
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!
