Description

The Skyline Trail stretches from Mount Hunger to Mount Worcester, following the ridgeline of the Worcester Mountain Range. Midway there is a cutoff to the Hogback Trail which connects to the Stowe Pinnacle Trail.

This route has several ups and downs along the way (some scrambling required) and is marked with blue blazes. It provides a great opportunity to connect the more commonly traveled trails (consider parking two cars at separate trailheads if possible). There will be mud and possible downed trees, as this trail appears to be frequented more so by moose than by people.

Hiked up the Middlesex Trail, then North on the Skyline Trail to an overlook just short of the cutoff to Hogback. Retraced steps on the return. — 5h 30m
