Comments: Very little snow (basically a dusting) at base elevations in the North Country. Snow depths instantly started to increase as driving up Diamond Pond Road.
From the boat launch, we took the Cohos Trail southbound (apart from a short stretch near the campground, this is all groomed snowmobile trail) to the col. Minimal depth of frozen granular/blue ice base on the corridor. Only saw two snowmobiles. Could be done in Microspikes.
From the col, we bushwhacked in open woods up to Tumbledick Mountain. About a foot of granular snowpack. Firm enough to support a snowshoe, but not enough to support booting. The highpoint appeared to be a crag just east of the recognized highpoint.
Back in the col, we followed the Corridor 18 bypass, which had similar conditions to the ascent, but perhaps a few more bare spots. Near the height of land on Sugar Hill, we bushwhacked slightly east to the recognized highpoint (also about a foot of snowpack; snowshoes needed). We then returned to the snowmobile corridor and followed it south for a few minutes to a side path (ATV only?) to an excellent southern viewpoint (Mahoosucs, Dixville, and Nash Stream peaks visible).
We then retraced our steps back to the parking lot.
