Ascent Trip ReportWonderful early winter hike! Parked on Stannard Mountain Road at the Wildlife Refuge Area Kiosk (about 2 miles from Route 16). There's a gated forest service road/trail cross the road from the kiosk and down a bit. From there I was able to ski in and up for about 1.5 miles. The road began to narrow and get rougher so I switched to snowshoes. At about 2 miles I left the road and ascended the summit. The grades are pretty easy in open hardwoods. There's not much of a view at the summit. Nevertheless it was lovely. Didn't see a jar. There are several 2000 footers in this area so I may be back.
