Route: John F. Woodhouse Trail, Old North Groton Road, Eliza Remick Road, Bald Knob Trail

Trails were generally dry with some minor muddy areas. Some of the steeps on Bald Knob and Crosby were slippery due to leaves. A touch of frost this morning. Almost peaceful sunrise, except for the Spanish Imposition (Groton Wind) sounding like an airport.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 3A south from Plymouth. Just prior to reaching Newfound Lake, taken a right onto North Shore Road. Continue straight through Hebron onto Groton Road. Once in Groton, bear right onto North Groton Road. The Cockermouth Forest - John F. Woodhouse Trail sign will eventually be on the right. Follow that dirt road to the gate - there is minimal room for parking adjacent to the gate. The John F. Woodhouse Trail is the logging road behind the gate.
