Wilmot (Winslow) Trail
It was pretty interesting to see what a partly cloudy and 46% cloud cover forecast translates into - extremely cloudy. Nonetheless, the views were still excellent (though leaving a heck of a lot of room for potential on a clear day).
The Wilmot Trail (also called Winslow in some places) overs a fairly direct and steep ascent to the summit. Though it starts off gentle, it soon ascents up rocky pitches for the bulk of the hike, with a gentle alpine walk along the summit ledges at the end. Though only about 1.2 miles one way (there's a sign that says 1 mile, followed by a sign that says 1.1 miles further down the trail, who to believe), the vertical ascent of over one thousand feet makes it a real hike versus a quick walk.
