Comments
Comments: This was may first visit to the Belknaps so I went all in. Very nice set of mountains with a diverse trail system and excellent views. The terrain varies from gravel roads to soft pineneedles and ledgy scrambles to open flat summits. I went for the patch this time, but I'll be sure to return to check out the many other trails. Thanks Roberta for joining and making the car spot possible.
