The herd path on the west side of Eagles Nest
Eagles Nest, southwest of downtown Danbury.
I hopped into the woods north northeast of the peak on Walker Brook Road (only posting on the edge was against hunting without permission) and slabbed up to the ridge. There appears to be some logging on either side of the ridge north of the peak. The woods were generally decent, though I had to get through a few small cliff bands.
There are some tall cliffs near the summit that face south and west and have excellent views (Kearsarge, Monadnock). Also a few nicely colored trees in the valley below.
Atop one of the western cliffs, I picked up a herd path which initially headed north, then appeared to switchback under the cliffs. Presumably this goes somewhere west of the peak.
