Description

The trail begins with a gorgeous hike along the north side of Round Pond. Located here is a small seating area and a fire pit. Continuing down the path towards Piper Mountain, views are limited as the area is primarily wooded. At approximately 1.75 miles, a view of Piper/Swett Mountain Ridge is visible. The trail then continues to traverse the side of Belknap Mountain with several small stream crossings. The trail then ends with a connection to Old Piper Trail which leads to the summit of Piper Mountain.

The driving directions are inaccurate. They direct you to 40 Grant Rd, and the trail directions indicate that the trail starts at the pond. A neighbor there told me the pond was 1 1/2 miles away, and the GPS indicated that I was still far away from the pond. Oct 23, 2017
