The Fauver Link Trail
Route: Fauver Link, Sutherland Trail (Plymouth Mountain), Sutherland Trail, herd path, Sutherland Trail, Fauver Link
Lunchtime jog started off on mostly dry trail under partly cloudy skies. Visited the east spur of the summit for the first time (there's a faintly scratched arrow sign adjacent to a cairn on one of the ledges near the summit that points to an initially cairn marked trail that becomes a herd path in the woods and leads to very nice ledges looking at the Whites and the Lakes Region).
Skipped Pike's Peak on the way back, as the rain moved in. The trail became damp, but not overly bad.
Lots of wildflowers.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 25 West from Ashland. A few minutes after leaving Ashland, take a left onto Cummings Road. A minute or two after a sharp left turn, take a right onto Texas Hill Road. A few minutes later, continue straight through a junction onto Old Hebron Road. The Fauver Link parking lot will be on the left a few hundred yards thereafter. The Fauver Link Trail trailhead is located at the back end of the parking lot.
