Ascent Trip ReportHIked this as part of the Monadnock Sunapee Green Way Trail on May 5 and two years ago in August. I love this section of the trail.
Both hikes I started out from Crider Shelter near Center Pond. After a bit of road walking, the trail enters the Andorra Forest for a lovely section of woods and stream. The hike up to Pitcher is easy and there are great views all around. Pitcher and the hills that follow it are covered with high bush blueberry bushes - I've never seen anything like it. When I hiked PItcher in August of 2016 I was able to scoop handfuls of berries as I hiked through. If you're not up for the entire MSG start here to Sunapee - its about 24 miles of great hiking.
