3/26/10 Ragged Mountain

Big change from yesterday's balmy spring-like weather. Mostly cloudy with a couple of peeps of sun , cold ( didn't get above freezing) ,and a dusting of new snow.
We started from the trail head on Barnestown Road which is one of several trails up this mountain. Once you cross the road the trail begins a steady fairy steep climb through woods with some open ledges with nice views.

And then drops down into the woods again for a stretch of mostly level or rolling trail. Here Kelley is trying to determine which trail we take.

The trail then begins the rise toward the summit and is much more open and rocky. Today this granite was icy and a bit tricky for me. We bushwhacked around some really icy spots and near the top there were a couple of places Kelley needed to find her own way.

A view of Mirror Lake from the mountain.

Resting after an apple snack before heading back down.

We returned the way we had come. 3 1/4 hours
