Looking up the Scarboro Ridge Trail on the way to Durgin Hill
Route: Scarboro Ridge Trail, (Durgin Hill), Scarboro Ridge Trail
After some rain had passed through on a hot, hazy afternoon, I headed to Durgin Hill for a quick jog.
The relatively new Scarboro Ridge Trail had recently been blazed in a southbound direction with blue plastic diamonds. The footbed on this section of trail has yet to get well established. Though there was the occasional deer fly and mosquito, the bugs were generally not too bad.
The views from the summit were decent (not nearly as good as some of the unnamed peaks on the ridge), looking south on the ridge and at Green Mountain.

Prospect Mountain and Green Mountain as seen from Durgin Hill
Directions to trailhead: To get to the northern trailhead, take Moulton Road north from Freedom. Eventually at T intersection, take a right onto Rice Hill Road (labelled as Cold Brook Road on some maps). Shortly after passing over a height of land (a house will be on the left), the northern trailhead of the Scarboro Ridge Trail will be on the right - a grassy road (a white pipe and red reflector are near it). There is limited room to park roadside.
