Ascent Trip Report

Trail starts out flat and easy like a walk in the woods. Be sure to turn left on the dirt road, then right up the hill following the red trail markers. There is a "false summit" that looks out over Snowy Mountain. A bit further is the true summit. Same fabulous view while standing on a ridge of flat rock surface. There is an additional .5 mile steep trail leading down to Indian Lake with a chimney near the shore. Did Watch Hill with my son as part of the 4-3-2-1 Challenge and contacted the organizers with a suggestion to add on the Indian Lake section as part of the challenge.
