New England Hundred Highest climbed: Dorset Mountain
Miles: 6.7 (total, out and back hike)
Elevation gained: 2350‘
While I followed the single track for most of the hike up, I did lose it near this turn in the creek and ended up bushwhacking a bit. I can confirm from my return hike that the single track continues straight, following the dry creek bed.
After I was done with the bushwhacking, I emerged onto a clearing with the single track, near the old remains of a cabin.
From here, the track climbed and climbed, probably hitting ~35%-40% grade at a number of places. The pictures don’t quite do it justice, but it was steep!
