Route: Haystack Mountain Trail

The trail starts off as a crushed rock covered road, before splitting off to the left onto a proper foot trail. As it reaches the ridge, the corridor widens up into a more winter-friendly route. The last section is a foot path winding up to the summit (the highpoint appears to be one of the knobs to the left of the trail just before the view ledge).

The main view is a little more grown in than I remember, but still good. I also found a few directional views nearby, looking south and west.
