With plenty of daylight remaining after a hike in the Squam Range, I stopped over to Eagle Cliff for a second hike.
Starting at the trailhead, I did some light bushwhacking, then attempted to scramble up a cliff that didn't want to be climbed. After wasting time on it, I went around it, back onto the trail, up the cliffs portion of the trail (a bit icy), then to the upper Eagle Cliff ledge.
From there, I jogged up to the height of land, then down to the Teedie Trail. The Teedie Trail appeared to be a bit mellow than the Eagle Cliff. In addition, it had some decent views through the trees with the leaves down. At the bottom of that trail, I jogged the road back to the Eagle Cliff trailhead.
