The first part entering off of Birch Mtn Rd in Glastonbury was very clear, very well marked (it’s the Shenipsit Tr). Ended up on Case Mtn in Manchester. The returning part of the loop was awful. Got lost multiple times (no marked trails), had to use my phone for the majority of the return trip to ensure I was staying on the “path”. Good thing for a fully charged phone battery. If I do it again, I’ll just stick to the Shenipsit.

Not much to it. Downloaded the map.
Started on the blue trailed crossed over to the red "Garnet" trail , which went nowhere. Crossed back to the blue/white trail and again just went nowhere. Went about 4 miles with no views, sites, direction. Should of just went out to the woods behind my house.
At least the day was nice.
