Trail to Mt. Rowe summit

Mt. Rowe was the original location of Gunstock and its chairlift. As time passed, the ski area expanded out onto Gunstock Mountain and closed most of the Mt. Rowe complex.

Mt. Rowe is a somewhat brief, moderately steep hike which opens into the first of a hoard of views as the ridgeline is hiked to Gunstock Mountain.
