Looking up the Jockey Cap Trail
Route: Jockey Cap Trail
Since I was in the area, I decided to head over to Jockey Cap for a quick sunset hike. Microspikes sufficed in getting up to the summit, with minimal snow depths and some ice patches.
The bare summit was a bit cold and windy, making the sunset a bit chilly. Nonetheless, considering the minimal effort, it was a decent display.

Directions to trailhead: Take US Route 302 East into Fryeburg. Just a bit after the village, the Jockey Cap Country Store and Motel will be on the left. At the furthest end of the parking lot near the motel, there's a sign for the Jockey Cap Trail. There are a few parking spaces labelled for the trail there.
