Route: Cohos Trail, snowmobile trail, bushwhack

From the plowed boat launch, we followed the Cohos Trail, which soon entered onto a snowmobile corridor.

We followed the corridor to just before the height of land, then bushwhacked in decent woods to the wooded, flat summit of Tumble Dick Mountain.

We then backtracked to the corridor and followed it to the Sugar Hill height of land, leaving it in a somewhat open area and soon finding the recognized hightpoint.

We then returned to the corridor and continued downhill a bit to a very nice view toward Dixville Peak, before retracing our steps.
