With only a few hours, I decided to do a quick local hike for some exercise. Arriving at Ferncroft, mine was the only vehicle in the oft-busy parking area.
After doing the roadwalk portion of the Blueberry Ledge Trail at a brisk pace, I hooked a left onto the Pasture Path. Surprisingly, despite not being a destination for hikers, it was fairly well established. As I climbed, snow flurries started.
After reaching the highpoint, I took a few photos from the summit (which has views looking toward Mt. Chocorua, with Mt. Whiteface and Wonalancet looming overhead). On the way back, I did some blowdown removal.
Though not the most scenic small hike in the area, it was nonetheless not a bad brief stroll in the woods.
