Ascent Trip Report

Working through the NH Firetower list and 52WAV. Nice afternoon hike with my 2 boys. There was 1 car parked when we arrived and we passed the party of 5 ladies descending soon after we started. We were alone the rest of the day. Trail is in good shape. Damp, but not wet. Moderate bugs at the summit, but not crazy annoying. We ascended via the "Hiking Trail" from the intersection at 1.1 miles, then descended the "Snowmachine Trail". This is starting to become overgrown (due to it being Summer naturally) but there was enough of a herd path to follow. One really muddy area that was unavoidable on this section but our shoes mostly dried out by the time we got back to the car.
