Max and David carpooled from the Richmond Park and Ride to meet Kim in Waterbury. After leaving Kim’s car at the Waterbury trailhead for Mt Hunger we drove David’s to the Stowe Pinnacle trailhead and were on the trail around 9:15. It was a cool, breezy, and pleasant day, perfect for hiking. We reached the Stowe Pinnacle around 10:15, and after admiring the views, continued up toward the Skyline Trail.

We reached the junction around 11:15 and then followed the ridge to the rock outcrops on the north summit of Mt Hunger, where we had the first part of our lunch. After the short trip to the open and signed summit of Mt Hunger, we had the rest of our lunch relaxing and looking at the views to the east.

We then headed back down to the Waterbury trailhead, which we reached around 2:45.

Trip leader: David Hathaway with Max Seaton, Kim Farone.
