Ascent Trip Report

I parked at the Centennial Trail parking area on Hogan Road, and set out running east along North Road, until I reached the Peabody Brook trailhead. I did a loop of the Peabody Brook Trail, Mahoosuc Trail (AT), and the Centennial Trails, ending up back at my parking spot. Along the way, I did short side trips on the trails leading to Giant Falls and the Trident Col AT Tentsite, to check out those spots (very little water was cascading down Giant Falls, with the current dry conditions). I also did off-trail side trips to Bald Cap Peak, Bald Cap, and Trident Mtn.
