Table Rock Trail @ The Balsams

Table Rock at The Balsams
On a second-in-a-row hot summer's day, we boarded The Rig and headed to Canaan, Vermont. We stopped in at Screw Auger Falls in Grafton State Park and then drove out to Upton, Erroll NH, and Colebrook NH and finally landing in Canaan. Driving through The Balsams area I noticed five hikers stepping out from a trail head–one of the hikers was a dog. This trail head is a just 1/8th of a mile from the Balsam's resort, so I figured it may have good views. While eating lunch at a rest stop just before Canaan, I searched for the trail.  Only a 2-mile round trip hike with views, I figured this had to be spectacular. And it was.

I couldn't get all the way out on Table Rock itself because of Bailey. The sheer cliffs could prove to be dangerous if a bee stung him or if something or someone jumped him. Nevertheless, we got close enough as you'll see from the photos. What a great find.

Co-pilot ready
