The Mt. Rowe Trail
Route: Mt. Rowe Trail, Belknap Range Trail
Trails were mostly dry and in good shape.
Mt. Rowe Trail is a new trail, comprising some existing trails and herd paths, as well as some net new footbed. Blue blazed, it's generally pretty gradual thanks to many switchbacks. Including the short stretch of Belknap Range Trail (about 0.3 miles), it's about 2.1 miles from trailhead to summit.
Lots of ripe blueberries at the near summit view point (near the monitoring station thingy). Didn't see any wood lilies though (usually a bunch near there).
