The Goat Trail on the way up Norumbega Mountain
Route: Goat Trail
Goat Trail was neat to see following the 2012 step work. Previously nasty ledge ascents now have rock steps, making it a more reasonable ascent/descent. While there isn't much to see from the summit cairn, there are excellent cliff views a short bushwhack east, and decent western views a hundred yards south on trail.
