Hiked this to Belknap and added Gunstock. Traction a must on Blue Trail to Belknap and highly recommended if adding Saddle Trail to Gunstock. Only the mountains can make a gray day seem so special.

About a month ago I went after work and it had rained that mid morning. Took my dog and she loved it! It was hazy around 430(to the top) so the views were a little blocked. But still a good hike! Went up green and came back down red trail.

We went to Green to Blue trail (2.2 miles) which I’d recommend give Green is an incline.

Just want to share that if the gates are not open, it’s a long walk uphill on a class V1 road. Once you hit the upper carriage road parking lot, you enter the woods. There is a white trail you can get on that brings you farther down the road when exiting. You could also enter it if you are aware of it. Nice views and you do end up at the fire tower!
