||This hike brought us to Sugar Hill, Stewartstown NH, #83 on the list of 93 fire towers that are standing, once stood or were proposed. While we were going to be in the area we hiked up to Tumble Dick mountain also. We started from Coleman State Park. The trail goes right through Campsite 11. We did ask about that and we were told that when that site is rented to campers, they are told that hikers may be walking through there campsite. He said it was a design flaw. LOL |
We followed the Cohos Trail to the height of the land. We were expecting the trail grass and brush to be high and wet, but it actually looked like someone mowed the path in the trail. Once at the height of the land we use a snowmobile trail to get to the summit of Sugar Hill. We did bushwhack the summit trying to hit all the high points. We did bushwhack up to the summit of Tumble Dick. The summit was more open than Sugar Hill and it had a canister.
Overall it was a great hike...6.5 miles.
We did post a video if anyone is interested in seeing the hike...just click the link.
