Route: Moat Mountain Trail

Trail was generally dry. Lots of blueberries in bloom, slowing hiking speed. Went all the way to Red Ridge Trail and back.

Good idea to have a general sense of where the trail goes, as its very easy to wander off it onto herd paths due to a lack of markings.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 16 North into Conway. Take a left at the first set of downtown lights onto West Side Road. Soon after, take a left onto Passaconaway Road. A few minutes down the road, the Moat Mountain Trail trailhead and WMNF fee parking area will be on the right. If you pass the picnic area on your left, you've gone just a little bit too far.
