Hubbard Hill Road
Hubbard Hill Road

Route: Hubbard Hill Road, Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway, (Hubbard Hill), Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway, (Jackson Hill), Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway, (Hubbard Hill), Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway, Pitcher Mountain Trail

Somewhat tiring conditions today, as increasing temperatures made the snowpack wet/sticky.

Hubbard Hill Road (gated) had a good 8-12" of snowpack on it. We broke out a snowshoe track adjacent to a nordic ski track.

From Hubbard Hill, we continued on the Greenway (a foot trail at this point, instead of a roadwalk) over to Jackson. I don't think the ground was frozen, so the snow was melting from both sides. In some places the snowpack was as minimal as an inch.

Hazy conditions diminished view potential, but both Hubbard and Jackson had wide vistas from somewhat open summits (in the case of Hubbard, it appeared to be a high bush blueberry field).

On the return trip, we took the northern end of the Pitcher Mountain Trail to that open summit (one need not climb the fire tower to obtain views). This segment of trail was barebootable, as well as the roadwalk down from the peak on that section of the Greenway.
