Points of Interest

1. Trailhead

In winter you may need to start directly from Route 2 if the road isn't plowed all the way. Be aware that if it's dry at the bottom you still may encounter snow at higher elevations... I did (see pics).

2. Mt. Starr King

All that remains of the cabin that was once here is an old fireplace.

3. Waumbek Summit

Yeah, I know the summit of Mt. Starr King was better. Snap of few pics of you at this wooded summit and return the way you came.
