A nice bushwack hike to some small peaks surrounding Round Pond in the High Peaks wilderness Make sure to follow the route on the map to find your way over these peaks. This hike is great because it takes you to some unique viewpoints in the area without a lot of climbing and off the beaten path away from the crowds.

This trail goes nowhere. I went in both directions at the fork. To the left (south) it deadend, the trail just disappears. To the right (WNW) it continues toward Dix etc... but there is no spur to take you up the peaks. This only exists if you are going to bushwhack the entire way, which is not a trail.
