|Date of Hike:
||Sunday, August 30, 2015|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||we parked at the paved end of glidden road in gilford where the dirt old clough road starts. there is room on the shoulder to get far enough over to not block the road. higher clearance could get to a wire gate less than .5 farther up and i could have likely forced my car up there, but hardly worth it. |
||Dry Trail |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||crossings between anna and mack on range trail running very low |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||some small annoying flies at times |
|Lost and Found:
||good dry walking on the old clough road. a bit overgrown in sections so it could be a wet walk after a rain storm. the road is not marked, but easy and obvious to follow up to the saddle between rand and west quarry where there are signs. quarry trail dry to west. we used the flagged bypass of the ledges which is marked on both ends with a sign board that is no longer legible. from the summit of west quarry we followed the marsh crossing trail, which while unofficial, is well blazed in yellow and easy to follow to the belknap range trail. more dry trail over anna and mack with good signage and blazing. same across to klem. the spur to klems summit that was laid out last year has worn in well. more good dry going on the rugged section of quarry trail over rand and back down the old clough road. we had noted a couple minutes up from the car a sign for the lamphrey cemetery. a footpath with some old orange blazes led for maybe .25 to the old cemetery.|
a good day in the belknap range for angelina to finish the belknap 12 peaks. some nice hazy views from numerous viewpoints along the route.
