The Victor Head Side Trail

Route: Old Summer Club Trail, Victor Head Side Path, (Victor Head), Victor Head Side Path, Old Summer Club Trail, Percy Peaks Trail, (North Percy Peak), Percy Peaks Trail, Old Summer Club Trail Trail

Trails were mostly dry. Rowell Link signed as "Jimmy Cowle Brook Road" and later "Bald Mt. Trail" on west side. Some slippery rocks in the woods, but slabs up North Percy were generally dry. Blueberries still mostly green and a few weeks away.

Most of the lower elevation trails were grassy snowmobile/woods roads which would probably get you wet on a dewy or rainy day.

360 views from North Percy. Directional views from Victor Head (best views were from a ledge just to the left of the view ledge).
