    Belknap Range Trail Question

    West Quarry Cutoff?

    Gaia topo shows a 0.3 mile long cutoff from near the summit of W Quarry mountain to the Belknap Range Trail. This cutoff is not shown on the paper map of the area.

    Does anyone know if this cutoff trail exists?

    I want to do a loop over W Quarry to Anna and back to Round Pond.

    I hiked it May 2019 and it was similar to the other trails in the area, a little less visited maybe, and I can't remember if it was signed but it was easy to follow. What I hiked is called the "Marsh Crossing" on this map: http://belknaprangetrails.org/belknap-range-trail-map/ My track: https://www.strava.com/activities/2342467832

    Marsh Crossing Trail. It is shown on the range map, the AMC map, and the LRCT map. It's also described in the newest AMC Southern NH Guide. It is signed at both ends but the signs are set back into the trail a bit.
