The Round Pond-Piper Link

Route: Fire Road, Round Pond Trail, Round Pond-Piper Link, Red Trail, Red-Orange Trail

Trails up to the pond were generally dry with some minor mud and a few areas of thick leaves. Ground generally not frozen.

Minor mud in places between the pond and Mt. Mack. Still a dusting of snow in the shade around 1,900 feet.

Fantastic late fall hiking conditions with temperatures in the upper 40s and nary a cloud in the sky.
