Leaving Tarlton Road on the way to Neville Peak
Leaving Tarlton Road on the way to Neville Peak

Route: Tarlton Road, Neville Peak Trail, (Neville Peak), woods road, bushwhack, (Nottingham Mountain), woods road, bushwhack, woods road, (Neville Peak), Neville Peak Trail, Tarlton Road

Trails were generally dry.

Took the gated Tarlton Road walk to the large cellarhole (on the right), then took a left onto snowmobile corridor 361E. Maybe 1/10 mile later at a fork, I went right onto a flagged trail (I believe Neville Peak Trail), which lead up to the Neville Peak ledges. Looks like portions are somewhat new, but footbed was apparent in others. Excellent views from the summit, as well as a couple of directional views prior.

From there, I followed a road north, then continued downhill on it, hoping to hit another old road (which turned out to be a drainage). I then bushwhacked up to Nottingham Mountain in mostly open woods, passing over a few ledgey areas with partial views. Soon thereafter, I ran into the jeep road on Nottingham Mountain. Not much in way of views from the summit area, except of an old chimney and outhouse.

I then followed the road briefly, but resumed bushwhacking to Neville, as the road continued southwest (whereas I came from the north).

Though foliage is definitely past peak, there were a few isolated areas with great color still.

Very neat area that will warrant some more exploration. May be worthy of inclusion in the next AMC Southern New Hampshire Guide.
