Route: Monadnock Mountain Trail

Black Mountain Natural Area Nature Conservancy northwest of Brattleboro.

Trail was mostly dry and in good shape. Lots of advanced trail work has been done in the lower elevations to preserve the footing.

Decent amount of blueberries on the summit. Views were underwhelming, but poking around the ledges revealed Mt. Monadnock and Wantastiquet Mountain.
