I strapped on my micro-spikes after parking at the trailhead on Mountain Road and followed the blue blazed trail through a field and past a pond into a hemlock and pine forest. The trail was snow covered and crusty, but fairly easy to walk upon, and as it gradually ascended the forest mixture changed to hardwood and some cedar as well. Reaching the summit ( approximately 1,760') the trail descends briefly and comes out upon a rocky outcrop from which there is a magnificent view westerly over Tully Lake and the area embraced by much of the 20 mile trail system. To the east, through a peek-a-boo in the trees, Mount Monadnock stands tall and its snow capped summit glistened on this bright sunny day. After lingering on this granite outcrop for a while, I took the same route back down. It is a truly magnificent short, and easy hike with only a couple of places where the grade approaches moderate. Hiking time up was only 45 minutes, and down about the same.

The hike around the lake was pleasant and plenty of nice views. Just be mindful that to get to Tully Mountain you'll be walking a little over a mile on a dirt road.
There's an entrance to the yellow trail by the day parking lot in the Tully Lake Campground. The walk around Tully Lake is relaxing and scenic. There's a nice picnic spot about halfway through with a bench and a spot to dip your feet in.
The walk to Tully Mountain wasn't that great though. Once you get to the Tully Dam picnic area, you have to walk on the road for a short distance to get on Royalston Road (not clearly marked). Then once you get on Royalton Road the yellow blazes are easy to follow.
I took the short scramble up Tully Mountain. Very pretty views at the top with nice flat rocks to relax on. I imagine I'd be a really nice spot to catch the sunrise.

Tully lake is the ultimate in kayaking. Travel for miles over at least 14 beaver dams for a full day of peace and silence. Best with a fresh bowl or joint of your favorite herb. Bring a camera with extra batteries cuz its a long trip!
