This was a lot of fun! there were many beautiful sites along the way and was not heavily trafficked at all, which was awesome! the trails were very well marked and easy to follow. you can make this longer or shorter depending on how you feel.

Did the full loop at the end of August. It was really beautiful. There are a few really fabulous views, lots of blueberries, and really beautiful forest. There were a couple spots where we had to pay attention to keep an eye out for the blazes, but they were fairly well marked.

Attempted to hike but had to bow out due to the number of bugs and inability to follow the trail. Trail is horrible, muddy and the flies and ticks are terrible. Wait until late fall or spring to attempt, do not attempt in summer.

Great hike ended up only ended up doing straight back and Anna because of the black flys and ticks

Hiked in reverse: Anna-Mack-Klem-Rand-W. Quarry-E. Quarry-Straightback. Missed the turn off of W. Quarry to cross over on the Yellow blazed (Marsh Crossing) trail. The Quarry Mountains were difficult - the trails were not well marked in some areas and were very steep (put the trekking poles away and use your hands, kind of steep). Views were limited: there are vista views on Mack and Klem, but you have to out-and-back on the Round Pond trails to find them. Encountered only one other hiker (lightly trafficked). While missing the turn was frustrating to no end, the whole loop made for a great hike and was like a HIIT workout!
