Comments: My approach to Mt Lethe was to turn off of the Carter-Moriah Trail at a point near the end of the bog bridge that is about 100 meters north of the height of land directly adjacent to Mt Lethe*. Proceed in an easterly direction for 100-200 meters, turn right (south), and ascend to the summit. The vegetation is very thick - wearing old clothing and eye protection is recommended.

*Note that at the height of land there is a well worn path leading towards Mt Lethe, but this path ends in an impenetrable thicket well shy of the actual summit. I have spoken with two hikers this past year who thought this height of land was the summit of Lethe.
