Nice Labor Day hike up Pack Mondadnock on Wapack Trail then down Marion Davis Trail back to parking lot. Refueled then took on section of Wapack across the road. Little did I know I was hiking just above one of the very first downhill ski areas in the USA. There is a monument to Charlie Beebe and his Temple Mtn Ski area up at the top. Cool cairn's and schist seats in camp area along trail to Holt Peak. Tried to come back via alternate Wapack trail which was seriously overgrown, not an option. Will be back to take in the entire Temple Mountain range and Burton Peak (and have a closer look at the ski slopes!). Good stuff!
