Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the TH at FR 461 off of Highway 150. First 1/8th mile is an old road which was quite muddy. At a poorly marked intersection, the Big Beechy Trail turned right. A gradual climb of about 1 mile led to the mossy summit. We searched around for 5 minutes, standing on every point that could possibly be the HP. Satisfied, we headed back for #2 for the day. NOTE: an absolutely beautiful stretch of forest was encountered about 300 yards from the summit. Tall hemlocks (I think) with no undergrowth - just wave after wave of moss.
