The Percy Loop Trail

Route: Percy Loop Trail, Percy Peaks Trail, herd path, (South Percy Peak), herd path, Percy Peaks Trail, (North Percy Peak), Percy Peaks Trail, Percy Loop Trail

The first portion of the Percy Loop Trail had smooth footing through nice woods. A bit rougher thereafter, I eventually reached the col. With fog lingering, I headed up the steep herd path to blueberry covered South Percy and waited for the skies to clear.

After seeing the fog move out, I headed back to the col and up the steep, ledgy trail to North Percy, from where there were hazy, but good views and plenty of blueberries.
