Looking up the Tremont Trail
Route: Tremont Trail
Having not been overly enthused with hiking Mt. Tremont from the north, I decided to give it another shot.
The first part of the trail was as I remembered it - decent footing with a nice brook to drown out the highway noise. After the largest water crossing (not overly large), the trail quickly steepened and became much more rough with rocks and roots.
Though never a sustained steep climb thanks to small switchbacks, it was nonetheless as relentless as I remembered. Finally reaching the summit, I had good views of the Sandwich Range as well as hazy views to west.
The descent was somewhat rough and dark, just as I recalled. It seems like the sun never hits this particular bowlish area in the afternoon or early evening, making it dark and somewhat wet.

Directions to trailhead: Take US 302 West from Barlett. Soon after passing Sawyer Rock, Stony Brook will be crossed via bridge. The Tremont Trail trailhead will shortly thereafter be on the left, followed by a dirt turn off on the right, where a few vehicles can park.
