Chairback Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"The hike follows the Appalachian Trail (AT) southbound from the Pleasant River to the summit of Chairback Mountain. The hike climbs steeply to a side trail to East Chairback Pond. From there the AT roller-coasters over a series of rocky knobs to an open ridgetop with fine views of the surrounding country and Chairback Mountain. Then it’s a short, very steep climb to the open cliff tops that are Chairback’s summit. The north-facing cliffs offer a spectacular vista.

This hike follows the Appalachian Trail southbound from the Pleasant River to the cliff s atop Chairback Mountain. The trail follows the south bank of the river upstream to Henderson Brook, then up Henderson Brook to the KI Road. Across the KI Road the trail begins to climb through hardwood forest. As you climb, the forest transitions from maple and beech to spruce and hemlock."
