Comments
Comments: I started by walking the road for a couple of miles until I was just west of potato. I bushwhacked up in heavy regrowth and then some medium thick woods near the top. The highpoint is recognized. I followed the ridge up to north horn, hitting some thick woods, but nothing as bad as I thought. I was able to improve the recognized highpoint. Going up to the horn, I started on a herd path and then worked into thick woods. At treeline, there were enough rocks to bushwhack without harm. I got on the AT north going over saddleback JR and to the poplar leanto. From the leanto, I bushwhacked to the recognized highpoint on poplar. I walked out via the AT and the ski trails on Saddleback.
