Bushwhacking the southern face of Dinsmore Mountain
Route: Bearcamp River Trail, bushwhack, Sandwich Notch Road
Short segment of Bearcamp River Trail (near Beebe Falls) used was mostly dry. Soon thereafter, we bushwhacked up the ridge in generally open woods (some ledges and cliffs, lots of slippery leaves) to the wooded recognized highpoint of Dinsmore (there is a false peak to the south). Directional views from an area maybe 75 yards southwest of the highpoint.
For the descent, we favored west in generally okay woods (some occasional scrappy stuff), but had to deal with some cliffy areas and lots of slippery leaves. We eventually popped out on Sandwich Notch Road above the Crawford Ridgepole Trail and then roadwalked back to the parking lot, getting back just before the misting started.
