Ascent Trip Report

More redlinining the Belknaps today. Completed the Shannon/Goat Pasture Hill area. Parked at Hidden Valley. Headed for sign that states "Sunset Waterfront", trail starts beyond this and splits red/yellow at the lake. Took Yellow trail up to Mt Shannon, then Blue/Yellow to the merge and Blue up to Old Stage Road. Followed Old Stage Road to the intersection with Anna-Goat Pasture Hill Trail and then turned right, following red blazes to Goat Pasture Hill. Not sure exactly where the summit was, didn't appear to be any really obvious point, but I'm assuming Red trail goes over the actual summit. Followed Red trail back to Hidden Valley. Trails are in mostly good shape. Lots of dry, and somewhat slippery leaves. Lots of bugs on Shannon and Goat Pasture summits as well as the trail ascending. Some areas of mud on the Blue trail, but avoidable with care. Easy to follow though blazes and signs are in need of a hug.
