    Default Rock Rimmon Hill - Danville-Kingston Area - 12-27-11

    Hi Everyone,

    Hope everyone had a great holiday season. I have the week off, so I'm hoping to get out a bunch. I started off yesterday by visiting a few local locations to me (seacoast are of NH). I explored the Rock Rimmon Hill area in Danville-Kingston, entering from the Danville side. I couldn't find a whole lot of info on the hike itself so I ended up winging it a bit.

    It was clouded, but it was evident that if the sky was clear, the view would have been great. The area has been quite littered with glass and graffiti. There used to be a fire tower up there too, and the support pillars are still up there.

    Check out my full trip report and pictures on my blog, which also includes access information (or the best I can provide anyhow): http://www.livefreeandhikenh.blogspo...mmon-hill.html

    Here are some of my favorite pics from the short hike:


    Small icicles starting on a boulder on the banking of the trail


    A fresh buck rub, most likely from this past rutting season


    Making my way onto the 345' summit!


    View to the south with Long Pond in view


    Fire tower location with leg securing flanges still in tact


    Tons of snow fleas migrating!


    My favorite shot of the day, a peaceful maple swamp


    Boots view of the bridge through the swamp!

    Thank you for posting that was a nice read and I like the pictures, pictures are always worth 1000 words.

    Are those mushrooms growing on the trees or a fungus? When I was playing around in the woods up there a few weeks ago, I saw something like that and was wondering.

    Hi KathyC - Thanks! I believe they are mushrooms. But someone with more information on the matter may correct me on that one.

    Hi Bob - Thanks! I couldn't agree with you more!

    Always good getting out to explore the local spots Karl. This looks like a nice one. Hope to see you getting out on the trail lots in 2012 (and hope to get out with you at some point). Happy New Year!
