Route: Unknown Trail

Was planning to do something up in Nash Stream, but I was reminded of these cliffs as I arrived in Stark. When the yellow blaze caught my eye from the road, I decided to check out this peak finally.

Trail is initially gradual, has a short uphill, then is gradual again, then very steep up to the first cliff area. I went left first, followed the herd path past the highpoint to another cliff view (.99 miles from the road to this final view according to my trailrunning app), then doubled back to the initial cliff interaction and went downhill to a nice view with a fire ring. Neat look at Unknown Pond Peak-The Horn-The Bulge-Mt. Cabot from here.

Directions to trailhead: From Route 110 in Stark, cross the covered bridge, then take a left onto Northside Road. Continue across the tracks. Just after passing a large field on the left, there's a small pull in area on the right. The first yellow blaze is visible from the road.
