Ascent Trip ReportWe zipped down East Street t Plantain pond road for our fifth peak. Mt Race (2,395') looked to be a long trek on the AT so we decided to try a bushwhack to the AT from the road. We found a trail at the road bend (1,780') that seemed to go in the right direction and figured why not! It turned out to be an easy 20 minutes to the AT and another 10 minutes to the summit. Definitely a much shorter route to the top.
