Despite the poor weather, I had blueberries on my mind. Thus, I snuck in a short hike up to Bayle Mountain prior to the rain arriving. While there were some bugs, they weren't bad enough to deter me from getting in some berry picking. Though cloudy, the views from Bayle were still nonetheless strong.

Directions to trailhead: From Route 16 South in West Ossipee, take a right onto Pine Hill Road. At the end of Pine Hill Road, take a right onto Ossipee Mountain Road. Shortly after passing Connor Pond, bear right onto Marble Road. Just before a narrow wooden bridge, the snowmobile trail enters on the right (and then leaves on the left after the bridge), marked slightly off the road with an orange gate. Park here without blocking the roads or trails, and head up the snowmobile trail on the right. The trailhead will be about 10-20 minutes up this snowmobile trail, to the left at a height of land on a curve in the road, marked with a cairn.
