Looking up the access road to Dixville Peak
Route: Access road
Basically drove up to the base of the actual climb of the wind farm access road, parked, and jogged up the road. There is a gate near the top that says road not for public use, as well as a no snowmobiles logo, but nothing specifically prohibiting foot use. ATV riders were checking out the towers on foot. Looks like the summit was blown up...the highest point now is a remaining ledge on the southwest side of the second wind turbine. Wouldn't want to be anywhere near that if there's ice on the turbine, though.
Roadwalk was very scenic with views to the west, south, and east. Some northwest views from near the summit as well.
Very noisy and dusty from the ATV traffic, though.

Directions to trailhead: From Route 26 east of the height of land in Dixville Notch, take a right onto West Branch (Clear Stream Road). Eventually, when passing a large open area on the right, take a right onto a road that will have power lines on it. There are a few places to pull off the road as one ascends.
