Comments
Comments: The Sutherland Trail was mostly dry, with a few patches of minor mud. Aside from some slightly dense growth, the trail was in good shape from bottom to top. After I got to the top, I checked out a side path which supposedly led to a viewpoint of Newfound Lake (which has a sign), but I found no such viewpoint (unless it grew over), and I ultimately turned around when I found a posted private property sign. Checked out the side path to Pikes Peak, a near summit viewpoint, which was in great shape and led to excellent views toward the Whites. There appeared to be a path leading from the view straight down to the main trail, but it was closed for restoration.

Plymouth Mountain is a neat little hidden gem- despite an elevation of only 2,187 ft, the upper part is full of rock outcrops and open ledges that made me feel like I was higher up and in the Whites. Great after-work hike.
