Route: Access road, herd path, unnamed trail

The gated paved access road was dry. Realized when I reached the summit that I must have missed the views. So, in hindsight, shortly after passing a water tank, look for somewhat wide path that goes straight when the paved road bears uphill to the left. This path gradually descends to a ledge that looks west at Keene.

Encountered no snow.
