Comments
Comments: Boojum, Pinnacle, Black, Melrose and White Rocks.

The Rock Circuit Trail is the one real hiking trail in the Eastern Fells, just as the Skyline Trail, also white-blazed, is in the Western Fells. It made for an enjoyable morning, with great views of the Boston skyline from Boojum and Pinnacle Rocks.
