The Berlin Road Trail
The Berlin Road Trail

Route: Mentzer Trail, Berlin Road Trail, Summit Trail, (Mt. Pisgah), Tyler Trail, Mentzer Trail, North Overlook Trail, Mentzer Trail

These trails, part of the Mount Pisgah Conservation Area, were dry and in good shape.

Very easy grades from this side - barely felt like I had climbed anything. Not too much to see from the summit, but the North View offered a look east, from where I could pick out the Prudential and Hancock towers in the distance.
