Route: Hamilton's Path, Great Hill Loop
With potentially sloppy conditions in the Lakes Region (an inch or two of wet snow maybe?) plus cloudy skies, so I headed south to Nottingcook Forest in Bow.
Trail was damp, but otherwise in good shape. Small patch of snow in a shaded area.
Good views in most directions with leaves down from three viewpoints on this quasi-loop, including one adjacent to the highpoint.
Only about 1.2 miles roundtrip, but there are additional trails that could make for a decent trailrun if in the Concord area.

Directions to trailhead: From Exit 1 of I-89, take Logging Hill Road south through Bow (Logging Hill Road becomes Bow Center Road and then Woodhill Road). Take a left onto South Bow Road. Shortly after passing under high tension power lines, the Nottingcook Forest kiosk will be on the left, with room to park on the side of the road. Hamilton's Path is on the right side of the kiosk.
