Route: Wrights Mountain Trail, Appreciation Way

Very nice network of trails with some good directional views up high.

Ascended Wrights Mountain Trail, which is essentially an old Jeep road. Generally a dusting of snow with a little bit of blue ice about halfway up. I was able to ascend without Microspikes. Had I descended that section, I may have considered them.

Nice directional "bench" view of Moosilauke prior to the summit.

The Wrights Mountain Trail passes just west of the highpoint.

A little past the highpoint, there is an open air cabin built on a ledge. Fantastic views ranging from the southwest to the northwest from the ledge and the cabin.

I took Appreciation Way for the descent, which was more of a foot path and as a result, had minimal ice.
