8am start. Parked at the first lot after the AT, mud and potholes made the road impassable beyond (for a low clearance vehicle). Ran up to West Peak via dirt road, fire warden trail, Horn pond trail, AT. Did this as an out/back run, didn't continue to Avery (wanted enough time to bag Sugarloaf). Added on South Horn on the way back.
