Open woods on the way up Tucker Mountain
After spotting a ledge in an aerial photo, I put Tucker Mountain on my to do list. A little bit of research yielded no information about a trail, so I decided to attempt a bushwhack up from the north.
Starting from King Road, I had fairly smooth sailing through generally open woods all the way to the summit. After finding a quasi-cairn, I continued south to the ledge I had seen, from where there was a grown in view of Kearsage. In addition, without leaves yet, there were peaks at other places to the south and east. Also of note, I observed a stone wall just below the ledge, as well as a few random cairns. No sign of any active trail, though.
