Heading up the Norumbega Mountain Trail
Route: Hadlock Pond Trail, Norumbega Mountain Trail
Trails were mostly dry and in good shape.
Trails on the east side of the pond are a little bit confusing, as they essentially circle around a private residence, then drop onto an access road to the dam.
The best on trail views on Norumbega are on this trail, just before the summit, providing a nice sunset perspective this evening. There's also a great eastern view via a short but scrappy bushwhack east from the highpoint (did this in the spring, but skipped on this evening on account of time).
