Owl's Cliff, Mt. Tremont
Albany, NH

Trailheads, measurements, times, distances, and maps are all approximate and relative to the hike(s) as shown below.
The Sawyer Pond Trail
The Sawyer Pond Trail

Route: Sawyer Pond Trail, Brunel Trail, Owl's Cliff Spur, herd path, (Owl's Cliff), herd path, Owl's Cliff Spur, Brunel Trail, (Mt. Tremont), Brunel Trail, Sawyer Pond Trail

Had to wade Swift River crossing (very close to the trailhead, so at least you find out early on if it's doable)...went about 100 feet downstream and found a place that was knee deep. Otherwise, crossings were minor.

Route was generally dry. A bit gravelly on the steeps on Owls Cliff and Tremont, making for a tricky descent. Some slippery rocks as well. Followed a herd path from the Owls Cliff view spur to the summit, but didn't see anything marking the highpoint.
