Ascent Trip Report

One trailhead is across Birch Road & Pinnacle Street Junction, so finally reached a whispering height from my youth for a see out across the Merrimack River to the former Mount Saint Mary College (gram's place of employed existence).

Pinnacle Park now has a Pinnacle St Trail Head Lot with picnic tables and a well beaten trail system (no longer accessible from Ardon Drive); more exploration led me to an overlook just above town, along a Bench Trail looping around beyond the Summit Trail junction, while the peak with its views up and down NH's River, are just as enjoyable as ever (China Mills' red brick expanse northward sitting at the junction of the Suncook & Merrimack Rivers with my "Bro" working in a forest of green).
