About five years ago, we hiked there in early July, and in addition to the gorgeous view on top, we were met with an abundance of ripe low bush wild blueberries (Vaccinium angustifolium). We haven't managed to replicate the timing for blueberry foraging since then.
Yesterday, most of the blueberries at Anthony’s Nose were not yet ripe.

But we did find a few that were delicious.

Another thing I love about hiking Anthony’s Nose is getting to hike on the Appalachian Trail. Yesterday we met a young woman who had started hiking in Georgia on February 14th and was headed for Maine. Hiking the entire Appalachian Trail is definitely on my long-term to do list -not in the cards for now, but hey, you never know.
