Looking up the Yellow Trail to Mt. Shannon
Route: Yellow Trail, (Mt. Shannon), Yellow Trail
Ascended the southern portion of the Yellow Trail from the scout camp. From the mess hall, I followed the signs to Sunset Lake, where the roads transition to trail.
Trail was mostly dry. Not much in way of fall foliage yet.
Via this route, it was 1.1 miles from the admin building to the summit.

The Yellow Trail trailhead
The sunset from Mt. Shannon
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 onto Places Pond Road. The Griswold Hidden Valley Scout Reservation entrance will soon be on the left. During camp season, continue down the road to the parking area near Lake Eileen. Visitors need to check in/out at the Administration building during camp season. A branch of the Yellow Trail starts near the shore of Sunset Lake.
