Trip Report: Mount Hedgehog and Mount Potash 8/08/2015

Saturday I decided to visit some new mountains, working down the NH 52WAV list.
After dropping some friends off for a Tripyramids, Sleepers, Whiteface, Passaconnaway traverse, I drove over to Downes Brook and headed out to my first destination, Mount Potash.

   
    
    
 
The trail here is very gentle, with just a few easy ledges below the summit. I enjoyed the views for a while chatting with some other hikers before heading back to the car.
I had some snacks and water at the car and reviewed the map. My AMC map may be out of date, there’s some recent changes to the trails to Mount Hedgehog but I found myself there in short order, with the initial approach quite flat and runable.

After returning to the car I drive over to the Oliverian Brook trailhead and hiked in a mile or so and setup my hammock and waiting for my friends to make their exodus.
I’ll upload some GPS link tonight for those that use them.

I am looking forward to more 52 with a view adventures!
