Route: Monadnock Mountain Trail

Trail alternated between dry ground and minor mud. First portion of trail is through fields in a gravel pit, followed by a traditional trail, followed by an old jeep road for awhile, then back to trail. No views from ground on summit, but 360 degrees from the very tall fire tower.

Very hazy, warm, and humid. May need to return on a crisp view day.
