Ascent Trip Report

So this hike was hard - in multiple ways. We hiked 13+ miles the day before (in snowshoes) so our legs were a little beat. There was a lot of snow, and very few tracks. Following the trail was difficult. We lost the trail multiple times. After 3+ hours heading toward wolf, we turned around. Here's the summary:

9:45 - Left the Moosilaukee parking lot
10:30 - North Kinsman Peak summit
Lost the trail for ~40 mins just north of the summit. See GPS track...
12:40 - Blue Ridge Mountain-North Peak summit
12:55 - Turned around
2:45 - Back at parking lot (exhausted).
