Allen Mt.

Near removed Twin Brook Lean-to

Allen's summit


This summit without maintained trail is located SW of the High Peaks Region. We get there by Highway 87 exit 29 then follow Rte Essex 2 West up to Rte Essex 25 to Tahawus until getting to parking area 1,2 km south of Upper Works. The hike in and out is 30,6 km long that make a pretty long day hike. They proceed on flat ground except for the last 1 km from Allen Brook. The unmark trail begins near the now removed Twin Brook Lean-to. The ascent from Allen Brook is very slippery. The tree-covered summit of Allen Mt. is located left from the junction with the ridge. This is not easy to plan a 2-3 days hike their because the trail is on private land up to the old Twin Brook Lean-to and there is no designated camp site. You should continue pass this lean-to about 1 km to reaches public land.
