Stimson Mountain Snowshoe – minus the snowshoes. Microspikes were enough.
After our Burlington Section annual meeting on January 30th we took a nice almost -sunny day hike up the new Stimson Mountain Long Trail relocation. We starting at the new Winooski Bridge parking lot on Rt. 2, and up the new Stimson Mt. Long Trail relocation.
Near the top we broke off the LT to the south-east and bushwacked to the Airway tower and took the same back same way. The approach to the airway tower is not a trail and in some parts the snow had drifted to two or three feet deep and OK, I wish I had lugged the snowshoes up. This is an approx. 6 miles round trip, and 1,800’ gain.
With Greg, Cathy & Cathy Tilley, and Susan, and Ted Albers, leader.
