Comments
Comments: Crossed through field under power lines then just followed our heading. Pretty thick woods at times. Leaves hid holes between rocks and rotted blowdowns created more. Did hit on a man-made cleared area on the ridge below the summit which led us to a path around and up the cliffs. A cairn at one bump at a ledge with no views. Saw a higher bump so headed over there: found our first sign in log! Made the crazy climb more than worth the effort. Followed trail to ledge with amazing views....but lost it soon after so just headed down through thick, steep woods. Finally located a dry stream bed which we followed until we came to a much wider stream and saw the logging/woods road above it that prior hikers had mentioned. Followed that the rest of the way down to another bootleg trail and dumped out onto the Old Waterville Road trail not far from the gate. Very short road walk to our car.
