Trails were generally dry with some slippery ledges in the normal places (like near the Outlook Loop junction). Bog bridging in the mudbog above that has helped significantly. Avoided the rain. Made a side trip to the DC3.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 16 North from Gorham, NH. Take a right onto Route 16 Truck Route (Unity Street). This will become Coos Street, then Hutchins Street. Take a right onto a road with a brown OHRV sign (Success Pond Road). Head up this dirt road for around 5.4 miles (if Alder Brook Road is seen on the left, you've gone too far). A small sign will be on the right for Success Trail, a logging road at this point. As of October 2010, one could park at the end of the logging road portion of the trail in a big field (a minute or two beyond the fork where one bears right). The Success Trail proper starts at the back end of this field.
