Huntersfield Loop

A little late for this trip report. Actually late for many trip reports. but, I guess better late then never. On March 21 we hiked the Huntersfield Loop. We usually do this hike the first week of April. But, this year everything is early. Hiked up to the top. Actually saw other hikers. A first on this great hike. We then hiked down the ridge line. Had to use microspikes on the top half of the mountain, as there was a small amount of snow that had just fallen, and hadn't melted yet. Had a great time.

Lean-to at the top of the mountain. Rarely used, but has one of the best views of any lean-to

I just lead a club hike(Rip Van Winkle Hikers) on Wed 27th. There were 4 of us. Beautiful day with clear blue skies. We went from the snow plow turnaround on Huntersfield Rd up to the summit and back. About 4.5 miles, 4.5 hrs. The flat area of the trail was muddy and wet at times. Temp. at summit between 45-50. Great views. Relaxed at the Lean-to. A good hike to do when leaves are off. Regards.
