Route: Snowmobile Corridor 22W, herd path, Precipice Path, Straightback-Anna Link, Anna-Goat Trail, Snowmobile Corridor 22W

Trails were snow free and mostly dry. A few areas of minor mud on the snowmobile corridor.

Precipice Path (west branch) was a very interesting trail with a rock slide, small water fall, and lots of walking near cliffs. Footbed not overly obvious in a lot of places, so one has to keep their eye out for the red blazes and flagging tape..

I forgot that I needed to go a decent distance down the Blue Trail southwest of Mt. Anna, so I didn't get any views from that peak (just a slight view from near the top of the Anna-Goat Trail).

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