Route: Unnamed trail, Ann Stokes Loop, Wantastiquet Mountain Trail, (Wantastiquet Mountain), Wantastiquet Mountain Trail, Ann Stokes Loop, (East Hill), Ann Stokes Loop, Daniels Mountain Loop, (Daniels Mountain), Daniels Mountain Loop, Ann Stokes Loop

Trails were mostly dry and in good shape. Didn't research this one much prior to going, so I got hosed up a little bit at the beginning, thinking I was on trail when I passed by the mansion remains. Indeed there were some unmarked trails, however they all faded out. I ended up bushwhacking down to the Ann Stokes Loop and was able to stay on trail thereafter without issue.

Good views from Wantastiquet Mountain (the Mine Loop Trail is now known as the Wantastiquet Mountain Trail; the Mine Loop spur wasn't marked, but can be found where there are brown arrow signs on the main trail).

Some very nice woods and views. This would be an excellent day hike when fall colors arrive.
