Ascent Trip Report

Hiked from Passcaconaway rd along the Moat Mnt trail up south Moat and Middle Moat. I took Red Ridge trail trying to get to Echo Lake.

Trail maintenance felt like some one was playing with me. At times there were bright new blazes at regular intervals with arrow signs. Then after coming out of an open area there were just the faintest traces of markings making you wonder if you were on the trail or a wash out only to turn to well marked trail a half an hour on. The trail is do able but I had to pay attention the whole time.
