Route: White Dot Trail, White Cross Trail, White Dot Trail, (Mt. Monadnock), White Dot Trail

While the loop is recommended in the opposite direction, we chose to ascend the rocky White Cross Trail and descend the ledgy White Dot Trail. Snow free hiking with minimal bugs. Morning clouds had not yet parted, but views from the top were still quite good.
