Comments
Comments: I followed the Norris Mountain Trail to the summit, with great views to the south and east. I then followed the back to a point where I began my bushwhack to Hadley. I dropped down an easy grade, stay to the left of the cliffs, and reached a well-maintained logging road in the valley between Hadley and Norris. I walked the road north to a log landing and then began the climb to the Hadley Mountain ridgeline. The climb begam progressively steep, through open woods and maple lines. Once I reached the ridgeline I trekked north through nice woods and glades. I reached the summit at the far north end of the ridge, found the jar, but couldn't open it, so I hung a new jar a short distance from the original. I returned via my summit route, reached the road and hiked back to the Norris Mountain Trail, back to my truck.
