Ascent Trip ReportDid this as hike #2 out of 14 for the "CT DEEP 2015 Sky's the Limit Hiking Challenge". Saw about a dozen other hikers out there. Took the tower trail straight to the top of Mt Carmel. The trail was broken with the snow packed down despite the recent 'blizzard'. It was very icy in some places making my microspikes useful.
