West Field

Hiked West Field on 8/25/16 with Bill and Diane Schor. The day started out bright and sunny with a chance of showers in the late afternoon. We started the bushwhack portion of the hike on the A-Z trail at 3100′. It was pretty thick spruce at first but then we went up a stream bed for a while that was easy and then we had a really good stretch of mossy pretty open forest.

There wasn’t much of note in the forest except the occasional Indian Pipe.

We reached the summit after an hour and a half of bushwhacking and quickly found the summit canister and signed in. The most recent visitor was on 8/5/16. We enjoyed our PBJs and then returned back to the A-Z trail and hiked out just beating the rain. Only 25 left to complete the New Hampshire 100 Highest.
