Route: Old Stage Road, Blue Trail, Red Trail

Old Stage Road was dry. 2014 beaver dam flooding not an issue.

Blue Trail starts just west of the Anna-Old Stage Road Link junction, just east of a bridge. Occasional minor mud in places, but could be sloppy in wet conditions. Red Trail also has occasional mud in places, but generally dry. Decent viewpoint just north of what I considered to be the highpoint on Goat Pasture Hill, on the north side of the peak.

A few minutes later, bear right to stay on Alton Mountain Road (rather than going left onto Avery Hill Road).
