Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Drove up Paris Road about 6.9 miles to left turn onto Philips Brook Road. Crossed the bridge and drove to a large clearing about .5 miles up. Road looks worse than it is; no problem driving up it. Walked another .1 mile to the end of the road where there is another large clearing. You could actually drive all the way here.

Comments
Comments: After walking that last .1 mile we entered the woods, and taking Beth Z's advice, heading towards the right side of the flat summit as we faced up the mountain. Nice woods for the first part of the hike with a moderate to steep slope. Then we came to the cliff face....here we decided to make our way up along it until we saw a path or it ended. The going here was pretty gnarly: lots of moss covered boulders and wide spread spruce and blowdowns. Nothing difficult to get around, mostly just steep and a few unexpected holes. Once the cliff face visibly narrowed, we found a clear path along its edge so followed that steeply up to the end where we were able to pop up onto the flat summit. Walked the ridge all the way to the recognized highpoint. Summit not bad walking although a little messy with twigs, etc. Heading down, we walked back past the spot where the cliff face ended looking for nicer ground and woods. Finally started down a very steep but mostly dirt slope which moderated to nice woods where we took a heading towards the end of the road where we eventually came out. Fun one!
