Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: We found parking on the right side of Herman Savage rd. (off of lost nation road) across from the second to last house. Seemed to be okay. We used bryan's trip report and noted the change in that the yellow rope he refers to is not there, nor were any signs from what we saw.

Comments: We made our way up the grassy road, through fields, eventually following the trail to Mt. Mary. The route is flagged in many places and alternates between road width and herd path for a bit, before remaining consistently narrow. After passing the pilot/Mary col, we soon reached the cabin and followed the trail to the highpoint. From there we descended to the col and went for the pilots. We had good woods for both. The other time I did this, I purposely avoided the west peak, which I do not recommend, as I hit thicker going by doing that. It was nice to just go over west peak, which has about 160' of prominence. Making a line for the col and then the shoulder of Hutchins, the woods were good until near the top of Hutchins. To descend, we followed our tracks back to the eastern shoulder and dropped down the Cummings brook drainage. The going was good and we eventually hit a logging road which brought us right down to Herman Savage. Thanks Stefan for coming up for this one.
