Route: Unknown trail

Ten days after jogging to Ladd Mountain for a no-show sunrise, I tried again and was successful. Distant clouds obscured the actual rise, however there was still plenty of color along the horizon, as well as some nice fog moving along Lake Winnisquam.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 104 East from I-93 in New Hampton. Shortly after passing Wickwas Lake on the right, take a right onto Meredith Center Road. Shortly thereafter, take a right onto Chemung Road. A few minutes later, take a right to stay on Chemung Road (where Camp Waldron Road goes straight). Awhile after the road turns to dirt, Randlett Pond will be visible on the right. On the left, there will be a blocked off logging road with limited room for parking. The trail starts on the logging road.
