This was one of the toughest hikes I’ve done for a few reasons.
Prior to heading to Vermont we checked the weather and it indicated there is a 30% chance of rain to start at one which appear to be light rain. So we decided to still head up. We started our adventure around 9 AM summitted about 1 PM. The trail had a decent incline some technicality. Trail seem to never end. I do have to say my favorite part of the trail was the rock scramble after the tent circle area. I jogged up there like a mountain goat. As people are walking by we had inquired what the view was like and they had indicated that it was socked in. We continued because obviously we were drove that far and we wanted to complete this mountain. We got to Summit to see about 5 feet in front of us. That was it. It was fairly windy we ate lunch and started to head back down when heavy rain and hail started. I definitely learn some lessons that day. I wear glasses so it made it very difficult for me to go down because I did not bring a hat with me thinking I would bypass this rain because we would’ve been up and down not thinking how technical this mountain would be that would cause us to take four hours to hike up. However we made it up and down and basically one piece. We plan to hike it again next year under better terms.
