Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Parked at Coleman State Park - visitor parking confusing - sign in front of Visitor Center said, "PARK IN FRONT OF OFFICE!" But I couldn't find any office on the map so I parked at the lakefront parking area. Visitor Center said Open but there was a note that they went into town.

Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: chest- and waist-high grass and very little drainage along the snowmobile trail - you follow it for a couple miles in - a bit of a slog. BUT, it is well-marked with yellow blazes - yay!!!!

Comments
Comments: Sugar Hill (Stewartstown), Tumble Dick Mountain

Trail goes right through a campsite - kind of awkward while people are eating breakfast but I gave them a strong hello!!!! Had to figure where I was on the map to head southbound from the state park.

Headed to height of land where I did Sugar Hill (Firetower peak but no firetower on it) - WATCH OUT - I AM PRETTY SURE I FOUND NETTLES UP THERE!!! VERY ITCHY!!! Summit has an ATV trail in the wrong direction - very scrappy and open - I headed down to a lower bump to check that out, too.

From there I decided to head to Tumble Dick - why? Well why not - it's right there!!! Had some difficulty finding the snowmobile trail after - got disoriented and the land kind of tilts you away from the trail!!!!
