Plymouth Mountain
Plymouth, NH

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

Route: Fauver Link, Sutherland Trail (Plymouth Mountain), bushwhack, Sutherland Trail, Fauver Link

Trail had a dusting of snow down low, increasing to about half an inch of crusty snow above 2,000 feet. Ledges up high were a bit tricky due to ice - light traction not a bad idea.

Note: The end of the Newfound Lake view spur off the summit (ie just before you get to the view ledge) is now posted No Trespassing.
