Climbed Mt Howe on 8/16/2017 with Bill and Diane Schor and Larry Babcock. Weather was forecast to be cloudy in the morning and then clear in the afternoon and that is exactly what happened. Mt Howe is located off the Shelburne trail near Shelburne Moriah mountain. It is reached by a dirt road off Rt 2 in Shelburne almost to the Maine border. We hiked 4 miles on the Shelburne trail to reach the start of the bushwhack. Trail was a combination of old logging road and then a not much used trail. It had rained overnight so we got pretty wet walking through tall grass and overhanging bushes. The bushwhack was short and pretty easy, we even found the remains of an old trail that went to the summit. There was a jar hanging on a tree on the summit and Larry replaced it with a small canister he happened to have with him.
After eating our PBJs we headed back to the trail and to the parking lot. Only 23 more peaks left to finish the New Hampshire 200 Highest list.
