Runner Notes

Save a little energy for the last push, it's a steep one!

Description

Starting on Shem Valley Road, the trail heads west just before the AMC lodge. Park and hit the trail! Soon you'll intersect the Woodland Trail which parallels the Clark Trail for a little while

When the trails split, stay to the right and head north. The trail then begins to climb the east face of the main massif. The Holt-Clark Cutoff trail will come in on your right, but continue up the ridge, passing the AMC High Cabin before joining the West Ridge Trail at the Fire Wardens Cabin.

From there, head straight up the summit cone for one last push to the top!
