Ascent Trip Report

I hiked up the white-blazed Birkhead Mt Trail from the Tot Hill TH. Arriving at a yellow blazed trail junction 10 minutes beyond the main Cooler Knob hp I exited the Birkhead Mt trail and trailed east crosscountry following easy terrain across the top of the Talbots Branch drainage and then veered a bit north and ascended X957.

On return from X957 I strayed a bit south and intersected the yellow blazed trail and followed it back to the junction with Birkhead and took it all the way back to the TH and my car.

From the yellow and white trail junction which is prominently signed to X957 took ten minutes. From x957 back to the car took 45 minutes.
