10/26 /11 Bernard Mountain

Cold and windy with sun and clouds- not bad in the woods but a bit chilly on the open ledges. We went up the West Ledge Trail which gives some nice views ( most of the Western Mountains are wooded rather than open). This is looking back down the trail as we were going up.

Kelley want's to know, where's the view? The summit offers none.

We continued down to Little Notch which has some steep rocky sections but Kelley managed them well.

We took the Sluiceway Trail down to Mill Field. Parts of this trail are in poor repair but parts are quite beautiful. You are descending in a large ravine and parts are quite lush. Kelley also finally found water she could get into on this trail.

When we got to Mill Field we took the Bernard South Face ( a steady climb back up the mountain) to the West Ledge and then down to our car. Kelley did well on a fairly strenuous hike . 3 hours


  1. The hillside with mossy boulders and trees is a nice composition.
