Route: Old Stage Road, Anna-Old Stage Road Link, (Mt. Anna), Mack-Anna Trail, (Mt. Mack), Klem-Mack Loop, Mt. Klem Spur, (Mt. Klem), Mt. Klem Spur, Klem-Mack Loop, Red Trail, Round Pond Road

Trails were generally dry with some areas of avoidable mud and puddles.

All trails listed are pretty well blazed, with blaze colors matching the current belknaprangetrails.org map.

Anna-Old Stage Road Link trailhead on Old Stage Road doesn't have a sign, but is pretty obvious from the road (just east of a bridge; blue blazes visible if you head a few feet up the trail). Anna-Old Stage Road Link (blue blazed trail) provides the only views near Mt. Anna (a ledge a few minutes below the summit with good views south).

Nice loop with generally decent footing, clocking in at about 8.3 miles.

Directions to trailhead: From Route 107, take Route 140 east into Gilmanton. Take a left onto Crystal Lake Road, bearing left to stay on it (when Mountain Road goes straight). After passing Crystal Lake, the road turns into Guinea Ridge Road. Take a right next to some cabins onto Manning Lake Road (this is inaccurately labelled as Camp Leo Road and Moulton Road on some maps...the current road sign says Manning Lake Road). There is a small parking area on the left just before reaching the area with the camp buildings. The Red-Blue Trail (Old Stage Road) starts at the bridge just beyond the main building, in the form of a dirt road. When camp is in session, visitors should sign in at the main building.
