Route: Oak Hill Summit Road, (Oak Hill), Oak Hill Summit Road

On my way down to Concord I decided to do a quick jog up Oak Hill prior to dark.

While the gated road jog started off dry, I did encounter some blue ice patches. Nonetheless, I was able to get around these and continue up to the summit without any issues.

While it was cloudy with snow flurries, there were still decent views from the top deck of the fire tower.

During the descent, I started a herd of deer - unfortunately they were too far into the woods for a photo.

Directions to trailhead: From I-93 North in Concord, take Exit 16, taking a right off the ramp. At the subsequent junction, go straight onto Shawmut Street, which becomes Oak Hill Road. The gated Oak Hill Summit Road will eventually be on the left side of the road, with some room to park on the right shoulder of the road.
