Matty met me after work today to hike Blackcap Mountain in Eddington. The trail starts at Camp Roosevelt and follows the perimeter of Fitts Pond until a trail leads off to the right. The climb itself was surprisingly steep at parts requiring a little scrambling. Once we reached the top we elected to walk down the dirt road rather than descend down the same trail. On the way down we encountered a pair of porcupines. Our total hike was a little under 4 miles.
