Did some redlining today with Summerset hiking Mt. Potash Trail to the summit (an out-and-back), and then doing the UNH Trail Loop over the summit of Mt. Hedgehog. The trail was mostly dry, and the weather was warm (70’s, approaching 80 as the day wore on), and somewhat humid. Lots of mosquitoes at lower elevation.
Overall, the hike had more elevation gain than I was really counting on. That plus there were sections that were quite rough, rocky, and rooty. Just a little more effort required than I was expecting for the 8.6 miles.
Nice views, mostly to the Sandwich Range. Passaconaway dominated much of the scene, but Chocorua to the east was the most interesting peak to view from my perspective.
