The route from the S. leads up Welch Mt., and thence around a ridge nearly 2 M. long, on which rises the rocky pile of Stone Mt. On the L is a deep semi-circular ravine, over which are Fisher Mt. and Green Mt. Bending around the R side of the latter, a patch of jungle is crossed, and the traveller soon enters the dwarf forests on the slope of Tecumseh.
