Ascent Trip ReportBeginning in the Chimney Hill development of Wilmington (in my opinion a creepy sprawling second home development that appeared devoid of life on 12/08) I utilized the Haystack Mountain trail to Haystack and then continued on the Deerfield Ridge Trail to Mount Snow and back. I found this to be a very enjoyable hike of about 12 miles. There are some great views from Haystack and Mount Snow. Although the ridge is wooded it has an open feel and there are snatches of views from time to time. This could be a great trail for hiking and trail running with some trail improvement and maintenance. The grades are never too steep and the views do provide some reward.
