Looking up the Gunstock Mountain Trail
Route: Carriage Road, Gunstock Mountain Trail, (Gunstock Mountain), Gunstock Mountain Trail, Carriage Road
In trying to avoid the snow squalls that popped up, I headed south to the Belknaps. Unfortunately, the squalls hit here as well and lingered for a few hours.
The Gunstock Mountain Trail was generally still covered in snow, though the open glades had bare ground. The ice situation just below the summit was quite bad, with multiple significant blue ice bulges.

Panorama? False advertising.
Directions to trailhead: From Route 11A East (from Route 3), take a right on Hoyt Road. Continue down this road as it becomes Belknap Mountain Road. Look for Carriage Road on your left - offseason parking is at the gate.
