Ascent Trip Report

Took Doug on a hike with me and took advantage of a car spot situation. The plan was to go down to the Squam Lake area, hike up Percival, then come down Doublehead. I knew he would love the cave section of Percival. We dropped off my car, then went to the Percival parking lot and started up the trail. The heavy leaf cover on the ground resulted in slippery conditions and I took a good fall, earning a large bruise below my butt. At the junction for the caves and cliffs, I showed Doug the route for the caves, then I went up the cliffs to the summit. Now I could claim all of the Percival Tr for my red-lining. Doug came up, then went down the cliffs and back up the caves. It was a sunny day with great views. We then headed over to Doublehead.
