Heading up the Dearborn Trail

Route: Dearborn Trail

The forecast called for a storm cell moving through later in the afternoon/early evening, so I decided to stay local. Not wanting to deal with snow, I headed up the Dearborn Trail.

With the exception of a few patches near the top, the trail was snow free. Other than the bottom flats, the trail was also dry.

Though the haze limited views a bit, they were still strong - even a distant outline of Mt. Washington was visible.

One particulary troubling thing was that I picked up 5 ticks during the hike - more than I've ever had in my life combined. Wow!

Dearborn Trail trailhead

Looking into Maine from Green Mountain summit

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 16 North to Route 153. Take Route 153 North to Hobbs Road (on the left, there will be a sharp curve with a schoolhouse monument). Hobbs Road will trun into a Class IV Road. Shortly after that warning, the parking lot is on the right. Dearborn Trail trailhead is at the back of the parking lot.
