Route: Mary's Mountain Trail

After driving near it a day earlier on my way back from Durgin Hill, I opted to head to Mary's Mountain for a quick jog.

The trail was mostly dry and good shape. With the high pressure system moving in, the views were quite strong, ranging from Foss Mountain to the Ossipees. There were no bugs to speak of.
