Description

This trail starts from the West View parking area. You can either take this around the summit or take the Green Trail (A.M. Thomas Trail) up and follow the Red Trail (Monadnock Trail) back down to the Blue Trail (Northern Peaks Trail). Either way you go, just head north.

Just over two miles in, you'll come to a big intersection with the Yellow and Purple Trail. It is well-signed but pay attention. Continuing on the Purple Trail extends this run by 1.5 miles.

Another mile on the Blue Trail (Northern Peaks Trail) will find the Purple Trail coming in from the right, but continue straight to the White Rocks overlook.

At mile four, you'll intersect with the Yellow Trail again but follow the signs to stay on Blue. A half mile later, the Blue Trail and White Trail (Mountain Loop Trail) will merge for the last half mile before returning to the parking lot.

Nice day for this trail. Can't do this too often because of all the rock gardens. 6.2mi
