Looking down the ski trails
Route: Ski trails, access road, (Tenney Mountain Northeast Peak), access road, bushwhack, ski trails
With rain moving out, I opted to hike something I'd been putting off for a few years. Unfortunately, the showers didn't let up as forecasted, so I ended up ascending the mostly bare ski trails in a steady rain.
After reaching the top of the double chairlift, I took a muddy access road to the communications tower, located at the top of a proposed expansion area in the 1980s. While I had originally planned to bushwhack to the true highpoint, the dropping temperatures and continued rain persuaded me to call it a day and head down. The communications tower peak appeared to potentially have decent views, so perhaps a return trip is warranted.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 25 West from Plymouth. At the rotary, take Route 3A South. The Tenney Mountain access road will eventually be on the right. Following the signs for the ski area, there is a parking lot at the top of the access road, adjacent to the main lodge.
