Blue Job 1/27/10

Difficulty: Easy - Moderate:
Fire Wardens trail on South and East side of the mountain is steep and wet with loose footing.
Loop trail which follows part of the access rd. is moderate but easy footing.
Gray Hill or Little Baldy Knob trail is easy with some easy rock scrambles.

Directions: From Rt. 11/N Main St. in Rochester, NH take Rt. 202A. Just past the "4 Corner Store" take your first right at a corner onto First Crown Point Rd. Follow it for approximately 5 miles. The parking lot is on the right (signed) just over the hill. 

Report: I had planned on a sunny day today on Blue Job and didn't expect to be taking many pictures. When I arrived at the parking lot the clouds had moved in and temps. were chillier than what I had though they would be. It's fuuny, hikers generally hope for sunny sky's especially in the winter (not so much in the mid-summer) but the cloudy days always seem to give more to the views. Today especially, the sun poked through the clouds in different spots in bright whites/yellows/oranges/reds and soft blues & grays with blue patches of sky here-and-there. This is my first time on this peak where the little baldy area had it's rock exposed. This mountain is becoming a favorite of mine for sure!pics of this hike here
