Route: Tower Road, Robert Frost Trail, Roaring Mountain Spur Trail
Not wanting to risk it with nearby thunder and lightning, I opted to jog to a subpeak of Mt. Toby (rather than go up in the fire tower).
After jogging the fire road for awhile, I took a left onto the orange blazed Robert Frost Trail, heading through a logged area. Soon thereafter, I reached the remains of a cabin, from where I picked up the Roaring Mountain Spur Trail.
The spur trail climbed steeply up to the wooded summit, which didn't appear to have any views even on a good day.
