Ascent Trip Report

One of Vermont's 100 highest. Approached via the Texas Falls (GMNF) Recreation Area and parked at the Picnic Area . AT about 1.2 mile I turned off the FR road to the east and ascended the peak utilizing overgrown logging roads at times. This area has been thoroughly logged in recent years. Near the summit I picked up what appeared to be a beaten path that was helpful for about .3 miles. There is a jar at the summit and some obstructed views. My descent track was somewhat south of the ascent and I connected with Fasset Hill Road which was decent.
