Ascent Trip Report

Another assent for this fall semester at Plymouth State university, My friend and I set out for this peak and got to the trailhead around noon, our initial plan was to do the two peaks but only did welch peak. Due to time and energy, I tried taking it easy due to her being with me but we did good. It was a little slippery near the top, you could start to see the ice forming on the bald rock, this peak is well climbed and well maintained its a moderate/easy assent. its 1.9 to he top of welch, and 1/2 mile from there to dickey, Next time ill have to try my luck with that peak but this was a good peak for her to start off with. This hike is a woodsy walk until the outlook (about 1 1/2 mile into the hike up welch) then it gets somewhat steep near the top, it becomes mostly bald rock and are tough in some spots. I would recommend this hike to low/mid experienced hikers, it has a great view and a great maintained trail. This is my third time t get to the top and I feel like it wont be the last :)
