Comments
Comments: After summiting Belvidere we hike north on LT to within 400 yards of Tillotson South Peak. We began bushwhack through open woods. We hit several humps until we landed what we thought was the recognized summit. I hung jar and returned back to the the LT.

We continued north to Tillotson Camp, and on to Tillotson main summit. At the HOL about .6 miles from the shelter we whack to the summit of Tillotson, found a sign marking the summit and then returned to the LT following an old abandoned trail that probably was the original trail to the summit.

Good day with old friends from New Hampshire
