Looking up the trail to Mt. Prospect
Route: Unknown trail
With a significant hike planned for the following day, I decided to take it easy. Seeing blue sky over the Squam Lake region on an otherwise cloudy (yet forecasted sunny) afternoon, I headed over to Holderness.
With the nice footing of the unnamed trail to Mt. Prospect, I took advantage of the cool temperature and jogged to the summit. After signing in on the summit register, I headed down to the northeastern viewpoint. Previously I had stopped at the first slight ledge - this time I continued just beyond it and came to a much nicer view point with 180 degree views.
Again taking advantage of the nice footing, I jogged back to the trailhead.

Directions to trailhead: From Meredeth, take Route 25 west, then take a right onto Route 175 north. Just prior to the 175A junction, take a right onto Mt. Prospect Road. After passing Prospect Ridge Road on the right and dipping down a bit, the road climbs and soon turns to the left. The trailhead is on the right (two granite columns laying on their side). There is some room to park on the side of the road next to the trailhead.
