Comments
Comments: Ascended and descended old ski trails from the former Dutch Hill ski area. The land is now part of the Green Mountain National Forest and some sanctioned backcountry ski trails are being cut.

Some minor patches of snow/ice on the south end, but still some larger patches on the north end, a foot deep. ATV use has turned some trails into rutted, muddy messes with areas of running water. Nice directional a little south of the wooded highpoint (found a cairn at what I believe to be the highpoint).
