Looking up the Stinson Mountain Trail
Route: Stinson Mountain Trail, snowmobile trail
Hiking trail was a bit greasy with lots of slippery rock from the humidity. The hiking trail is in dire need of advanced work such as rock waterbars and steps due to continued erosion. Snowmobile trail also has areas of active erosion, as well as a mudbog to contend with.
Unfortunately the summit views are dominated by the Spanish Imposition (Groton Wind), which, despite being one of the higher electricity demands of the summer, was largely idle.
If looking for the Stinson Lake view, when you first hit the ledgy area on the summit, the trail sort of turns left to finish the ascent. The herd path to the view is sort of straight ahead (initially south, then west), maybe a few hundred feet long, leading to a framed view of the lake and Moosilauke.

The Stinson Mountain Trail trailhead on Doetown Road
Looking at the Spanish Imposition from Stinson Mountain
Directions to trailhead: Take Route 25 to Rumney. Take Main Street (it will become Stinson Lake Road) north, then take a right onto Cross Road. When Cross Road intersects Doetown Road, take a right. The small parking area and trailhead will be a bit down this road on the left.
