New England Hundred Highest: Sandwich Dome
52 With A View: Jennings Peak, Sandwich Dome
From the Notch Hostel, I headed out to the Drake’s Brook trailhead. I was on trail by 3pm, and decided to head up the easier Drake’s Brook Trail to the intersection with the Sandwich Mtn Trail. It only took me just over a hour to hike the 3.2 miles; it was sooo much easier than my last attempt where there was 3 feet of untouched powder. I sent straight to the top of Sandwich and then headed over to Jennings Peak. After Jennings Peak, I decided to go down the Sandwich Mtn Trail to complete my loop in reverse order. The bugs were enthusiastic, but it was a very nice day for a hike!
