    Started out heading toward West Quarry Mountain, the weather was so nice decided to continue over to East Quarry. Still great weather so went over to North Straightback.Found the trail head at the end of Glidden Road in Gilford, which follows an old road that is now impassable. Hiked for about 20 minutes until I came to the white trail and followed that all the way to North Straighback.The trail at times was a little difficult to follow, but not too bad. Some pretty steep climbs along the way, but again not too bad if you're in fair shape.Came back the same way I went, I don't know how many miles it was as there were no trail head signs to indicate and I did not have my pedometer.
