Wonderful and challenging trail.

So I’m a bit of a dope - I read about this trail on AllTrails and thought it sounded about right for me in terms of length and difficulty so off I went.

I had no idea that I was scaling the highest peak in VT with 15 yr old boots and no trekking poles, food, or company!

Doh!

Anyway...I did it and it is spectacular. An excellent challenge for the casual hiker and the views on top are a tremendous reward for the effort you will expend getting up there.

Highly recommend but take it more seriously than I did in terms of prep.
