Mount Averill




I had been itching to get out and hike, but was nervous about doing any 4,000 footer in the winter. I ended up finding a relatively close hike that was manageable for my boyfriend and his daughter. Ever since our Utah trip I haven't wanted to lose my exuberance and ambition to get outside and keep moving. My 4,000 footer list still lingering and haunting me in the back of my mind. I was anxious to get out there and keep racking up those peaks.

Mt. Averill was a great choice for the day. It hadn't been hiked in sometime and was completely snow covered. I lead the way packing the trail for future hikers and my companions. The sun was shining and it was perfectly clear, not a cloud in sight. The trail itself was moderate to easy with fresh snow it was a little more difficult to navigate and the trail wasn't marked very well. Blue ribbon tied around trees marked our path. Luckily I had my All Trails App to help guide me as well.





Upon reaching the top we were rewarded with a beautiful view. The peak over looks Great Averill Lake and is stunning. Definitely worth the short hike up.
