Haystack Mountain Trail
I started this hike relatively late in the day considering the time of the year (because I was busy watching the Three Stooges that morning). Though the trailhead was bare, there was snow at probably 2,500' in elevation and 2-3" on the summit of Haystack Mountain. The trail is easy to follow if you look for the blue markers and the occasional "top" arrow, however I missed one when going around a blowdown near the summit - the footprints in the snow eventually disappeared and I turned around a few hundred feet later after hitting some big mud pits.
The view from the summit is good, but not as good as nearby Mt. Snow.

Looking northeast over Haystack Pond
Directions to trailhead: Find Upper Dam Road in the Chimney Hill development (it's a maze). The Haystack Mountain Trail sign is toward the top of that road.
