The blue trail to Frenchs Ledge
Route: Blue trail, French's Ledges Trail
Trails were snow free and mostly dry.
Took the shortest route to the peak, which meandered around some marshes and ledges. Blue Trail may be a good one to avoid during mosquito season.
Surprisingly fantastic views from the summit dome - nearly 360 degrees. Excellent looks at Ascutney, Okemo, Killington, peaks to the north, and nearby Croydon. Would be an excellent summit for a sunrise or sunset.

Looking southeast at Croydon Mountain from Frenchs Ledge
Directions to trailhead: From Route 120 in Meriden, take Main Street west, then take a left onto Colby Hill Road (crossing a covered bridge). Take a left onto Columbus Jordan Road. The blue trail trailhead and small parking area will eventually be on the left shortly after passing a field on the left.
