|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||This was Parker's first hike and bushwhack. He did great but I had to keep him on leash...it's hunting season in VT. |
|Lost and Found:
||Sugarloaf- I parked at the LT road Crossing on Rt. 58 and climbed south with Parker. The leaves and wet trail made it a challenge, wet and slippery conditions. When we got to where the LT leveled off we headed into the woods, summitting Sugarloaf, signing in ane congratulating Parker on his first whack and summit. Headed back the way we came.|
Lowell-Benchmark-After parking the truck near the roped off section of Houston Road, we walked the road a short distance and found another short road that headed to the summit. It was a pleasant trot through open woods, reaching the summit and signing in.
On the drive back on Houston Rd. the views of the Greens are spectacular. You can view entire spine of the Green all the way from Canada past Belvidere.
