Ascent Trip ReportStarted the day with a 6 mile run on the Carriage road that included a climb up Conners Nubble (591’) from 300’ in 2.5 miles (25:42) then back to the trailhead. There was a great view of Eagle Lake from the top of Conners. I continued up the Park Road (300’) to the saddle at 500’ then up a fire road to a clearing and a bushwhack (very open woods) to the summit of McFarland Mountain (724’), the mile from the Eagle Lake parking lot to the summit took 10:45 and I came down in 9:45. There was no view from the top but there was a USGS marker, a cairn, and a couple of pennies on the highest point.
