Route: Trout Brook Mountain Trail

On a sore ankle and not satisfied with just hiking Burnt Mountain, I headed up the Tote Road to Trout Brook Mountain.

The Trout Brook Mountain Trail started off gently, prior to reaching some steep, ledgy stretches. Many of the ledgy areas provided excellent views to the north.

Reaching the summit, I was let down by the relative lack of views. Not satisfied, I looked around a bit. Spotting a dramatic cliff, I backtracked up to the summit sign, the followed a herd path (and then bushwhacked) over to it. From the ledge, I had amazing views of nearby ponds and peaks.

Back on the trail, I had to take my time descending, as the steep ledgy areas worked hard to challenge my ankle.
