Comments
Comments: After work hike/whack of Rocky Ridge, Pawtuckaway State Park's unofficial fourth mountain. The trailed portions of the hike were fairly straightforward, although following the herd paths on the ridge can be confusing, since they seem to go every which way. Actual summit seems to be a wooded rock outcropping, but there is a ledge not far from the top with a sweeping view of the park and all three major peaks in it. Best view in the entire park, and one of the best in southern NH, IMHO.

If you hate bugs of any kind, I would stay away from this loop until mid to late fall, as the bug situation was, and usually is, quite bad....
