One of the New England Hundred Highest. We did this trail on a hot, humid, buggy day just before the Memorial weekend. The access road off Upper Hollow Rd in Dorset, VT is dirt and gets fairly rough. We parked in an open area, probably used for snowmobile parking in winter. The trail follows the stream up to the col and then continues along the ridge. The trail is steep, especially after the remains of an old house. We stopped at the old tower and then topped Dorset and walked over to North Dorset. The existing trails do NOT always match up with what's on the map. The only view is from the old tower site.
