|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||To get in, I drove Morton Cuttoff, to Lincoln Pond road, to Wiggle Brook road, to Big Canyon Rd., to East Branch Road. The only part that was rough for my small car was the section of Big Canyon Rd., which is just south of Camp 14 road. On the way out, I found Burnt Mountain road to Lincoln Pond road to be better driving.
I was able to drive up E Branch road to a point just southeast of bull where I pulled off to park. |

|Lost and Found:
||I began by bushwhacking a direct line on Bull. Initial going was grassy cuts. As I worked my way up, things thicker with many moss traps. However, thick woods-wise, things were not as bad as I expected. The hardest part was finding the recognized highpoint, which felt like a needle in a haystack. After searching several bumps I found it and took a similar route back to the road. |
I bushwacked up SW twin, finding good woods almost the entire way. The upper slopes are steep. The recognized highpoint was easy to find. I bushwhacked NE twin next, finding good woods on the ridge with minor thick exceptions and lots of low growth. I walked in some cuts, which offered nice views of Snow. As I hit the north west ridge of the peak, I followed a herdpath to the recognized highpoint. I bushwhacked straight down to the road in mixed woods and returned to the car.
