Comments
Comments: One of my favorite little peaks if you're in Grafton notch its a great little peak to visit, used to not get much traffic but it is getting more popular. Just an up and back today did not take the Woodsum spur. Nice easy trail for the first part but gets steeper as you head up to the view ledge and then on to the summit. Mostly good footing, a few minor spots on rock that were damp but nothing really slippery. There are a number of blowdowns to negotiate, lots of herd paths forming to get around.
Good views from the ledges and top today.
