Route: Mary Jane Morse Greenwood Trail

Unplanned hike after being denied Goat Pasture Hill due to beaver flooding. Went up from the gate (just east of the height of land on Alton Mountain Road) on the unblazed grassy road also known as the Mary Jane Morse Greenwood Trail (about 0.75 mile one way). Trail was mostly dry, but grass and weeds were encroaching in places. Avery Hill Road trailhead is probably a better bet. Fantastic views from the open summit, but basically no blueberries to be found (blueberry fields are quickly growing in...may not be a view in another decade or so).
