Dial & Nippletop Loop

Dial & Nippletop Loop

On a crisp and clear fall day, Evan and I got an early start out of the St. Hubert’s parking lot. Our destinations for the day: Nippletop and Dial. We decided to do the loop counter-clockwise, ascending through Elk Pass to summit Nippletop first, followed by a gradual descent down to Dial.
Macomb, South Dix, and Grace Peak

Macomb, South Dix, and Grace Peak

Beginning from the Elk Lake parking area, Evan and I set out to hike our remaining three high peaks in the Dix Range.  We started our trek by heading up the Slide Brook herd path toward Macomb Mountain.  The trail is well worn and smooth for a good portion of the hike, but once you reach the rock slide portion of the trail, the tides change a bit.

On our Great Range traverse in the fall of 2012, team PureADK hiked Saddleback, followed by Basin, and after a quick stop at Little Haystack, finished with the prominent and remote Haystack. A quick jaunt beyond Basin, we made the trip over to Little Haystack, only to discover that we still had a way to go before reaching Haystack’s broad and open summit.
