The trailhead sign is easily missed when driving on the S Rumford Road so keep an eye out for it set back a bit from the road. The path starts off on an old gravel road with a steady incline. About 2 miles into the trail there is a left turn at the Mount Zircon Trail sign to climb up a narrow footpath to the summit. The parking area is plowed in the winter but you may need equipment such as microspikes to do the trail in the winter. The views are expansive and the White Mountains can be see in the distance on a clear day. The wind turbines on Spruce Mountain are also easily seen from this mountain top. Show more
